World music performers often present themselves as emissaries from a single exotic country. But at the fourth annual Globalfest, a world-music showcase with a dozen acts at Webster Hall on Sunday night....

.... Andy Palacio, from Belize, preserves the music of the Garifuna people, descended from escaped African slaves who ended up on the coast of Central America. His band, the Garifuna Collective, played electrified Garifuna music, with a guest appearance by a 78-year-old Garifuna patriarch, Paul Nabor, who had a cutting voice and some sly dance moves.

The music shuttled across the Atlantic: breezing along with a beat akin to calypso and rumba, then bearing down with unmistakably West African drumming. The Garifuna were repeatedly forced into exile, and Mr. Palacio introduced one song by summing up its lyrics: “Here is the land that used to be our home,” he said. “Today it is inhabited by killers.” Not all cross-cultural encounters are as benign as world music.

Awesome - wish I was closer to the city. I have met them & seen them perform in Belize many times and they are truly something - especailly Mr Nabor. It was an honor and privilege meeting him.

They must be freezing their butts off up here. High of 16 today. Notice the ski cap under Mr Nabor's trademark straw hat!
