Infused with contemporary influences, Watina expresses the culture of the Garifuna community of Central America with Belizean icon Andy Palacio. The album is packaged in a stunning matte-finish digipak including a 32-page booklet of exclusive photos and English translations. The enhanced CD includes a “making of” video and a preview of the Garifuna women’s album Umalali.
These soul-stirring melodies and vibrant grooves from the Garifuna community of Central America unite the musical legacies of Africa and the Caribbean to create a powerful saga of exile, longing, hope and celebration. Years in the making, Watina is infused with contemporary influences, yet firmly rooted in the rich musical traditions of this unique and inspiring culture. Belizean icon, Andy Palacio, leads an all-star, multi-generational lineup to deliver a monumental tribute to the Garifuna of yesterday and tomorrow.
