Andy Palacio & The Garifuna Collective’s 2007 album Wátina was widely praised as a masterpiece and introduced the world to the soulful melodies and powerful rhythms of the Garifuna people of Central America. Palacio passed away suddenly a year after the album was released, leaving his community wondering who would carry the torch of cultural revival and musical innovation. On Ayó (“Goodbye” in the Garifuna language) The Garifuna Collective and Wátina producer Ivan Duran have created a magical album whose songs of heartbreak, hope and joy will take your breath away.
