New Music Video for "Ubóu" Launched


The Garifuna Collective celebrates the European release of their acclaimed new album Ayó with a tour and new music video. With a lineup that consists of the best musicians in Central America's fertile Garifuna music scene, The Garifuna Collective promises to carry the torch of cultural innovation and promotion passed on by their late front man Andy Palacio far into the future. LISTEN TO A PREVIEW

 
September 2 (October 14 in France) also saw the European release of the acclaimed album Black Birds Are Dancing Over Me by Danny Michel with The Garifuna Collective. Canada's NOW Magazine writes, "It’s a fun and uplifting listen, bursting with acoustic and electric guitar, saxophones, organic, rich backup vocals and tons of Garifuna percussion. The obvious comparison is Paul Simon’s Graceland, but there are also moments of heavier Talking Heads-like funk."  LISTEN TO A PREVIEW

“Every track is a gem. * * * * ” - Songlines

Ayó starts with a lilting farewell to Palacio, and eases into rousing, soulful songs driven by guitars and the distinctive rhythms of the Garifuna hand-drums, with strong vocals and a dash of dub and funk.  * * * * " - The Guardian

“A gorgeous mix of ballads and uptempo songs. * * * *” - Mondomix

“The Garifuna Collective has finally returned with a new album that bids farewell to Palacio and continues his legacy...Ayó boasts both the saturated, tropical colors and the lovely, lilting rhythms that have endeared the Garifuna Collective's music to audiences all over the world.” - NPR - All Songs Considered
