Andy about Garífuna Culture

World music enthusiasts around the globe are mourning the unexpected death of Andy Palacio, Belizean musician and leader of the international movement to preserve Garifuna language and culture. The Garifuna are a hybrid culture descended from African and indigenous Caribbean ancestors. Palacio’s latest album Wátina (‚I called out‘) released in 2007, propelled him to the international stage and sparked a cultural revival in his home nation of Belize.“ (Susanne Hackett at YouTube)
