Andy Palacio & the Garifuna Collective
Wátina (I Called Out)
Stonetree Records

Featured this month on the cover of: Global Rhythm - world music, culture & lifestyle magazine
The Garifuna people are a people and a language without a country. They originally settled on St Vincents, but were scattered along the mainland coast after being driven out by the Spanish. Today they live in Belize, Nicaragua, Guatemala, Honduras, and various places in South America yet always in the minority. Wátina was the first Garifuna record that I'd played on the World Beat. I was very excited about the music of Andy Palacio & the Garifuna Collective, back in April 07 when I first heard their cd Watina and selected the recording as my World Beat Pick of the Month. I'm sorry to say that Andy Palacio passed away last month.
