The Corozal House of Culture is dedicated in preserving and promoting Belize’s rich, diverse culture. On November 19th sounds of Garifuna drums will fill the air in Corozal Town. A drum circle will take place in front of the House of Culture beginning at 5 p.m. The circle will consist of 30 Garifuna drums supplied and orchestrated by drum maker/performer Mr. Mark Welch. Mistress of Ceremony, Ms. Audrey Martinez will engage the audience with storytelling, song, and the Garifuna language.
