African Americans vocals with patting Ethnography Music Bahamian songs Fire dance songs Federal Music Project Office Jacksonville, Florida Duval County

A Nassau song from the Bahamas, sung when jumping the fire dance. "The fire dance is some sort of African survival in the West Indies, and they beat the drums and sing these little songs." Zora Neale Hurston, here interviewed by Dr. Carita Doggett Corse (state director of the Florida Federal Writers' Project), learned quite a few fire dance songs when collecting songs in the Bahamas for Columbia University. Originally of Eatonville, Florida, she was already a published novelist and folklorist when she took a job with the Federal Writers' Project in Florida.
