Here is a snippet from the voting page to give you an idea of what the contest is all about: “The “Da Bahamian Ting” Song Competition attracted 138 submissions from across the country. Arlene Nash-Ferguson, director of Culture, Heritage and Entertainment in the Ministry of Tourism, said the level of interest in the competition was amazing.
‘We want Bahamian music on the map. We want The Bahamas saturated with our own music. We believe that if we are world class in track and field then surely, we can be world class in Bahamian music,’ she said.
According to the rules, songs must be in a Bahamian genre, Rake N Scrape, Goombay or Junkanoo, and around three minutes long.
The winner of the ‘Da Bahamian Ting’ Song Competition will receive $25,000 with second place taking $20,000, third place $15,000, fourth place $10,000 and fifth through 10th $1,000 each.”
