Event Description

"With his talent,vision, charisma and searing voice, Aurelio is a big part of the reason Garifuna music has achieved outside recognition internationally." ~NPR

Born in the tiny coastal hamlet of Plaplaya on Honduras' Caribbean coast Aurelio is as much a musician as he is a cultural ambassador for Honduras' coastal Garifuna people. The very origins of the Garifuna lie in a wild, tragic tale of mixing of cultures that hybridized to adapt and survive and along the way, they absorbed French, English, and Spanish terms.A prodigy of percussion, Aurelio began performing at Garifuna ceremonies when just a boy, even at the most sacred events where children were usually not allowed. By the time he left Plaplaya to attend school at 14, he was a respected musician with a firm grounding in Garifuna rhythms, rituals, and songs. Performing in his native tongue, Aurelio's compelling sound is a blend of traditional music fused with Latin rhythms. His journey is marked with thoughtful reflections of the Garifuna past, the sometimes difficult present, and the promising glimmers of the future for artists like Aurelio. "We're not going to let this culture die…few people know about it, but I adore it, and it's something I must share with the world."
