Aurelio will be at McIntyre Hall for ONE NIGHT ONLY on Saturday, January 30

Aurelio

Torch-bearer of the Garifuna tradition and the first black member of Honduras’s National Congress, the soulful singer, guitarist and percussionist Aurelio Martínez has come a long way from the tiny fishing village in which he was born. He assumed the lead in preserving the culture’s unique language and extraordinary sound after the passing of its first musical ambassador, Andy Palácio. He’s been casting the warm glow of the Caribbean upon audiences ever since, enchanting all with his bittersweet vocal style, guitar accompanied paranda ballads and hypnotic percussion.

“Powerful and vibrant… an engrossing blend of upbeat, Latin rhythms with heartfelt melodies.” ~ Nubiart Diary (UK)
