Phases & Stages

Aurelio

Laru Beya (Sub Pop)

Honduran Aurelio takes the Garifuna mantle from his late, great mentor Andy Palacio (ACL Music Festival 2007), further evolving the musical moment an African slave ship broke free to the Caribbean. Light, coastal, airy rhythms and island cries smooth the Jimmy Cliff lilt of the title track and Wingless Angels-type chant "Ineweyu." Afro-Latin sound system "Wéibayuwa" and belly-rubbing "Wamada" frame the shake and bake.
