A stunning album featuring a multigenerational, all-star lineup of musicians from the African-Amerindian Garifuna communities of Belize, Guatemala, and Honduras. Filled with enchanting rhythms, powerful melodies and a deep soulfulness that recalls Cape Verdean or Afro-Peruvian music, Watina has been praised by media worldwide as one of the best world music albums in recent memory, Watina is the masterwork of the late Andy Palacio, whose sudden death in January 2008 shocked his homeland of Belize and the international music community.
