The Garifuna Collective feat. Umalali

The Garifuna Collective feat. Umalali

“It is a beautiful mix of African rhythms, choral singing, and hypnotic, melancholic melodies that will leave you gasping for air, with a mood that will haunt you long after every listen….. unique, deeply moving, unforgettable.” - Songlines

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, turtle shells, acoustic and electric guitars, and bass, the group tells its stories through music, dance, and traditional costumes, demonstrating why UNESCO officially proclaimed the language, dance, and music of the Garifuna people as a “Masterpiece of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity.”
