Garifuna Soul

23Nov06

Music from Central America’s Caribbean Coast is rare – in Nicaragua, the best known comes out of Bluefields. The latest edition is the music of the Garifuna, one of the Coast’s indigenous groups, who live in Belize, Guatemala, Honduras and around the Pearl Lagoon area of Nicaragua.

The Garifuna’s most exciting artist is Aurelio Martinez, whose new CD blends the African and Latin influences on the Caribbean Coast. To read more about Aurelio’s music click here. To order a copy of the CD, contact our sister organisation, the Nicaragua Solidarity Campaign, here.
