Following on February’s concert in San Pedro featuring The Garifuna Collective, Stonetree Records and Sundiver Beach are excited to announce that Belize’s internationally-acclaimed musical ambassadors will be returning to the island on Saturday, April 21st with a couple of very special guests for an afternoon/evening of great music and dance. Admission is free.
AURELIO MARTINEZ - Celebrated singer, composer, and guitarist from Honduras, Aurelio has been a major figure in Garifuna music for decades, having entertained audiences in over 20 countries with his unique Paranda style and incredible stage energy. If you had the opportunity to see Aurelio headline Carnegie Hall in NYC last October you know you do not want to miss this opportunity to see him perform live, at Sundiver Beach. The title track on Aurelio’s critically acclaimed 2011 album Laru Beya literally means “By the Beach” in his Garifuna mother tongue. (www.stonetreerecords.com)
DANNY MICHEL - This enormously entertaining singer/songwriter/guitarist from Canada currently is working on a new record in Belize featuring The Garifuna Collective to be released later this year. With a few Juno nominations and about eight solo albums to his credit “His honest and straight-forward lyrics, earnest live performances and witty stage banter have earned him a devoted global fan base. If you’ve seen Danny live in concert, you’re probably already a fan. If you haven’t, you're missing out on “One of Canada’s undiscovered musical treasures” (Toronto Star). (www.dannymichel.com)
