On the road with the extraordinary Music of Belize!
Our regular readers know all about our passion for the music of Belize. And given the breadth, depth, amazing diversity and sheer soul of Belize’s unique sounds, that should come as no surprise.
But what we do find surprising is that it hasn’t yet taken the world by storm. Sure, anyone serious about world music has some Belizean music in their collection, and it continues to slowly but surely gain more listeners around the planet, but why Belize’s music is not more popular remains one of life’s great mysteries.
So it was good news to hear that The Garifuna Collective was on the road in the US and Canada, where they’ve been playing to large sold out venues (Check out Belizean TV coverage at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hZ1sICisv80). The exposure they’re getting on this tour can’t help but to translate into greater awareness of their own unique sound, and Belize’s music in general.
Forgive the evangelical tone, but we’ve also just had a listen to Ayó, the latest recording by the GC and are still in that rather blissful state of hearing something new and wonderful from the Jewel.
It may have something to do with the fact that Ayó, which means “goodbye” in Garifuna, is a tribute to the late and in every sense of the word great Andy Palacio, who suddenly passed away in 2008 and left a void many of us still feel today. In addition to being an amazing musician, songwriter and electrifying performer, Andy was a cultural ambassador for Belize and in particular, his people, the Garifuna, so it’s only fitting that that this album should be full of wistful energy, joy and soul.
