Andy Palacio - (1960-2008) - auteur garifuna (Belize)

Palacio was born and raised in the coastal village of Barranco[1] and worked briefly as a teacher before turning to music. He sang mainly in Garifuna, an Arawakan language with a large number of words borrowed from Carib, French, and Spanish, but also composed English-only songs. He was the first musical artist from Belize to have a music video on international television. He received the award for "Best New Artist" at the Caribbean Music Awards in 1991, and was post-humously awarded the BBC3 Awards for World Music award in the Americas Category, in 2008.

Son groupe continue à interpréter ses compositions.
