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.
