Aurelio is, without exaggeration, the greatest living interpreter of Garifuna music.
Darandi is a collection of his favourite songs from across his 30 year career, recorded to capture the sound of his incendiary live performances and accompanied by some of the Garifuna world's brightest musical talents. Pairing upbeat, dynamic rhythms with melancholy, heartfelt melodies, this music is both deep and danceable.
Garifuna music comes from the Caribbean coast of Central America. The Garifuna are descendants of West African, Central African, Island Carib and Arawak people. Music, dance and drumming are all closely intertwined.
