Junkanoo is a Bahamian celebration with roots in West Africa. Slaves taken to the USA maintained some of their native music and dance in the Gullah culture of the Carolinas and Georgia. During the American revolution, British loyalists and slaves left the US and settled in the Bahamas where Gullah culture and language can still be found.
