Andy about Garífuna Culture

World music enthusiasts around the globe are mourning the unexpected death of Andy Palacio [1], 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 [2])
