Orlando Garrido
If you don't know who, what and why is the Garifuna in Belize, Orlando Garrido's art will take you by the hand and present you personally to their vibrant indigenous culture. When you gaze at his unique paintings, the images of these native Belizean people gaze back willingly at you. Their music, their dances, their rituals... perform visually on the canvas. You can feel the ethnic liveliness! So Belizean in its portrayal! so exclusively Garrido-ist!

Barrows Hall in Belize City long ago

It used to be a dance hall in the 70's, I used to sneak out and go to dance there.

Many a saturday night dance there as a teenager owned by patrick barrow sr. they lived upstairs before that they lived on dickernson mrs was the nicest person an a wonderful influence on us young people remember tuesday night fun...

I lived in across the street I am still friends with the children of Ms effie n Mr pat. I used to sneak out to the dance to watch folks Mello down back in the days...

This is my family's home! It was our family' s hurricane shelter during Hurricane Hattie! Over 100 adults and children found safety in that house during the deadly rain, winds, thunder and lightening and rising water. When the water receded and the grime cleaned out, the downstairs wa turned into a distrubutuon center where donations of clothes and shoes were received and distributed to everyone in need! That was the beginning of lifetime friendships. The Patriarch was Pat Barrow Sr., and the Matriarch was Effie Barrow! The downstairs became the infamous "Barrow's Hall"! Many people on your timeline forged wonderful memories at Barrow's Hall at the dances put hosted by my Mom! The years following the hurricane, Barrow's Hall was used to distribute "cake and lemonade" refreshments to school children after they marched in the September 10th parades! My baby sister, Sherryl Barrow, was born in this house, as our Mom birthed all of her children at home with the assistance of midwives! The house still stands on New Road today. One day soon we will begin work on it to restore and revive it! My brother, Patrick Barrow Jr., will probably add some more history about our family home! Thank you for featuring my childhood home on your blog! Am humbled to be able to share a little of the history of the Barrow's residence!

I knew it was after the 10th parade as you can see the little girl with her lemonade ,wish it could be refurbished and turned into some community social base for young people in memory of those who owned it...
