The Garifuna Collective

  • Belize
  • Vivacious Garifuna roots

The Garifunas are a people of the Caribbean, born of the union between escaped slaves of African origin and the Caribbean autochthones. Between polyphonic songs, catchy percussion, subtly melancholic melodies and festive swing, The Garifuna Collective celebrate their culture in all its aspects. Their music is like a huge tree, deeply rooted in the land of their ancestors. A solid rhythm, a common body of improvisation, voices and danceable melodies like palm fronds waving in the breeze. A mixture of softness and impetuosity, delight and warmth.
