Videos » Aurelio - The Laru Beya Sessions

Buy Laru Beya on Itunes: Aurelio Martinez, the new star of Garifuna music, has created an irresistibly soulful and uplifting album that breaks new ground for his unique and threatened culture from Central America. Aurelio is one of the most extraordinary and passionate artists of his generation, and a major tradition-bearer of the Garifuna culture that fuses African and Caribbean roots. Hailing from Honduras, Aurelio is recognised for his powerfully evocative vocals and his talent as a composer, guitarist and percussionist. The album was recorded in Honduras, Belize and Senegal, where Aurelio worked with Youssou N'Dour and Orchestra Baobab, who both guest on Laru Beya.
