Bahamas pictures - Professional Limbo dancer
 
This dance was very popular at beach parties.  In the mid 1960's a Fire limbo was done as a stage act as well as a few contests were thrown, but legal hazards made this cease publicly. The Fire Limbo is a normal Limbo with the exception of the stick, it is set on fire burning while the dancer performs, with occasionally the dancer having a lighted torch, blowing alcohol from the mouth to the torch for an explosive bursts of flame. The Fire Limbo was not done socially, and was performed by professionals and should not be tried at home for more than the obvious reasons. :) The Caribbean Stick Dance is a fighting type dance, which may or may not be related.

Hi my name is Ace Culmer Nassau Bahamas is my hometown I used to live on Mackie Street I lived there until I was 18 years old I went to school at St. Thomas more. All of the  Bahamas islands are so beautiful if you ever go there you will say the same thing. The water there is so crystal clear you could see the fish and all their beautiful colors. And they have so many different types of tropical fruits and the fruits taste as sweet as sugar. If you ever come to the Bahamas you need to try some of their sugar apples, and some sour sops, and also their scholar plumbs, and hog plums, and don't forget to get some sap adillys, these are only a few of our tropical fruit. The Bahamas is like the garden of Eden we also have one of the beautiful is trees that you would ever see is called upon Siena tree. In the summertime is covered with beautiful red flowers all over this tree which makes it look so beautiful. I cannot say enough about the Bahamas you have to see it for yourself how beautiful it is.

  Percy & Ace playing Calypso photo July420112-1_zpsc7bfb89e.jpg  

This was when I was 19 years old, and this is from my wild days! I was playing at the Banana Boat Restaurant in West Palm Beach. I also played for the Senator, his name was Senator Reed Morse, at his last election. But I am sad to say, he did not win his bid for re-election. We also played music for Mr. Barnett, who owns all the Barnett Banks in Florida. He hired us to play Calypso music at one of his largest hunting lodges. Percy Dixon was the Singer and lead guitar player and I was the percussionist. Back then, we only played reggae and calypso for private parties. We both would make pretty good wages playing Calypso and reggae, about $400 each for 4 hours and back then that was pretty good wages, doing the work that we love to do. 

The last time I went to Nassau, Bahamas, I went to Paradise Island and I had an opportunity to play music over there also. It was just for one night, but man,  I had so much fun. A couple of the guys in the band used to live just up the road from me on Mackie Street. They asked me if I knew how to play calypso music and I told them to just give me a chance. I will try to do the best I can but if I sounded bad,

I told them to look at me and shake their head and I would go back to my table. After I played with them for a while and they saw how good I played Calypso, they asked me, are you sure you never played Calypso music before? I told him this is my first time playing island music. I was just playing around with them. You see, I knew two of the guys who were in the band. But I never let on that I knew them. 

After I played with them that one night, the next morning they wanted me to join their band and play with them on the Banana boat.They were so excited. They thought that I would join their band and go with them and play music on the banana boat with them. But I told him there is no way possible for me to go with them because I was only down there for a short time on business, and my partner and I were leaving in the evening to go back to the states.

 When they found out that my name is Asa Culmer, and they knew that I lived up the road from them, they grabbed me up and lifted me up and down, and they were so glad to see me. Their names were Peter Bowe, who played the sax, and Anthony, who played the horn. They were brothers I had known since I was a kid. Maybe one day, I can go back and play with them again for old times sake.

Historic Nassau Bahamas`

Historic Nassau takes you from Bay St, along Parliament St and
Duke St. Bay St is fillled with Shops and restaurants for the tourists
arriving by cruise ship. Parliament St are for Governement buildings
and the other streets are rich with cultural and religious edifices.
Deeper into Nassau's (not in this slideshow) center is what they call "
Over the hill". There you'd find where the descendants of the former
slaves build their colorful abodes. Over the hill, is the actual center of the
Bahamian-African culture. The major public buildings of 'HIstoric'
Nassau can be visited on foot. There's Parliament Square which is home
to the statue of a Young queen Victoria, and to the House of Assembly.
There's also Nassau's Public Library and Museum, which was originaly
the city jail (1797). Fort Fincastle (1793) and the Queen's stairs is a must,
with its 60m high Tower and great view of Downtown Nassau. Although
not very interesting to see Gregory Arch it is very rich in history and is very
important in the development of the city. (see the report on Nassau) And of
course there are the many Churches who witnessed the ages
