Andros is blessed with entertainers that have made a mark in the music world, creating indigenous music: the late, great guitarist Joseph Spence, one of the best-known Bahamian folk and gospel musicians worldwide, was born in Small Hope; his contemporary, folk singer Israel Forbes in South Andros; and renowned Elon “The Crab Man” Moxey, who is famous for writing songs about his native home, is from Mangrove Cay. Local musicians are able to use the most basic form of “instruments” such as washboards, bottle corks nailed to a stick, or the poinciana seed pod as a shaker to create the greatest heart-thumping, leg-shaking, and body-weaving rhythm on this side of the gulf. The sounds of Andros are regularly showcased and most places offer music by live bands or DJs and dancing on weekends. Do it like a native and try a "rum-shop crawl," stopping at one of the local hangouts for a more laid-back experience, or see what entertainment your hotel rolls out in the evening.
