Latest news »Aurelio's 'Darandi' is out today
Recorded live at Real World Studios, Aurelio's new album, Darandi is released today.
Darandi is a collection of Aurelio's favourite songs from his career recorded to capture the sound of his incendiary live performances. 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.
"Aurelio Martinez has become the leading Garifuna performer, and this is his best album to date" ★★★★ The Guardian
"Upbeat and engaging, like the man himself, and backed by Guayo Cedeño's vibrato-rich electric guitar, this album should bring more attention to an under-valued stream of Afro-Latin music. Welcome in that Caribbean sunshine!" ★★★★ The Irish Times
