Singer-songwriter, guitarist, percussionist, and political activist, Aurelio Martinez is one of Central America’s most gifted performers. Born in Honduras into a family of talented musicians, the artist is today known as the Cultural Ambassador of the Garifuna nation. The Garifuna are people of Amerindian and West African descent who live along the coasts of Belize, Guatemala, Nicaragua, and Honduras. While deeply rooted in the mix of African, Caribbean, and Latin sounds that make up the traditional repertoire of Garifuna music, Aurelio is carrying this rich culture into the future.
