Aurelio Martinez gives a music performance that will have you on your feet. Aurelio, a torchbearer of the Garifuna musical tradition, marries the music and the movements of his Caribbean coastal culture. Set to the sounds of the infectious Central American paranda style, framed by drums and maracas, Aurelio’s lyrics highlight the social and political challenges faced by the Garifuna community, historically African descendants. The songs are from his critically acclaimed album Landini, plus premieres of unreleased music from his forthcoming album. His album will be available for sale so you can relive the rhythms!
