At 83 years of age, He is the last living Legend of the Three Kings of Belize. Residing in San Pedro Columbia, Toledo, he builds and plays the Maya Harp and proudly represented Belize in 9 countries of which his wall is highly decorated for his invaluable contribution.

Of late, his legacy has faded and his fellow Kings; Mr. Paul Nabor (Garifuna) & Mr. Wilfred Peters (Creole) have both passed away leaving Mr. Florencio Mes (Maya Q'eqchi) with only memories of their musical reign in their respective genre and ethnicity

He laments on the promise of a house, car and stipend of which today he must make ends meet with only $500 from the National Institute of Culture & History NICH. He lost a son only 3 weeks prior to the time of this video and has little communication with his 10 children.
