The International Costa Maya Festival is almost here and the list of performers keeps growing. Adding to the lineup to this year’s Costa Maya Festival is the world renowned Garifuna Collective who will be performing on Friday, August 8, 2014.
The Garifuna Collective is Belize’s Pride and true cultural ambassadors. They group consists of the best musicians in the fertile Garifuna music scene. It has been six years since Andy Palacio & The Garifuna Collective released Wátina, an album that received unanimous acclaim and elevated the international profile of the music and culture of Central America’s Afro-Amerindian Garifuna community. On the cusp of tremendous fame, Palacio passed away suddenly at the age of 47 not long after Wátina was released, leaving many to wonder who would continue bringing the voice of his people to the world.
The Band has kept the great legacy of Andy Palacio and toured the world performing great Garinagu beats and promoting Belize’s rich culture. It will be an event like no other; be sure to be make it to this year’s International Costa Maya Festival. See you there!
