Lloyd Augustine, you may know him as frontman for the band, Garifuna Collective, which has taken on the late Andy Palacio’s torch of spreading Garifuna Music to the world. The Collective has recently been touring the world, but Augustine also has a solo career which he’s nurturing.
He’s released his second solo album “Yugadan” (yu gada), which features 12 songs that he’s held on to for some time, but never recorded. Today, he stopped by and told us why you should pick up his new album:
The album officially launches in Hopkins on Saturday with a concert featuring some of the prominent paranda artists from the south, and Augustine wants everyone to come out. He told us that it’s going to be a beach party filled with good clean fun and people celebrating Garifuna music:
Entrance to the concert is 20 dollars, and it starts at 9 p.m. on Saturday. The album itself costs 20 dollars and will be available at Teddy’s Music Store and Tambran Music Store.
