Aurelio: Guardian of the Garifuna
Garifuna musician Aurelio performs Africa in the video below. Born on the Caribbean coast of Honduras, vocalist, guitarist, and singer-songwriter Aurelio strives to preserve and find new ways to express his musical heritage. Aurelio's music is founded in the Garifuna traditions of his African and Caribbean-Indian ancestors, and he is best known for his high-energy take on the Garifuna-infused pop genre punta rock.
