WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Hailing from Belize, Guatemala, and Honduras, Umalali and the Garifuna Collective pay tribute to the rich heritage carried forward by Garifuna women. With evocative melodies and powerful call-and-response songs backed by traditional Garifuna drums, maracas, turtles shells, acoustic and electric guitars, and bass, the group tells its stories through music, dance, and traditional costumes, demonstrating why UNESCO official proclaimed the language, dance, and music of the Garifuna people as a "Masterpiece of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity."
