The Garifuna culture has been shaped over centuries by their mixed ethnicity and location, their music an intoxicating mixture of African rhythm and Latin American grooves.

This band consists of the best musicians in the fertile Garifuna music scene of Belize. They bring together the deep cultural roots of Garifuna music, mixed with modern grooves, arrangements, and instruments. Unique hand drums, turtle shells and jawbones, guitars and bass are all used. The musicians create a powerful energy on stage, building hypnotising rhythms that form the backbone for the haunting melodies and powerful vocals that characterise the project.

“This troupe of extraordinary singers has fashioned a unique and wonderful world; once you enter, you will never want to leave.” Charlie Gillett, The Guardian (UK)
