Documenting Traditional Garifuna Song in NYC and Belize

March 12, 2015 @ 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

The Garifuna are one of the indigenous peoples of St. Vincent in the Caribbean and now reside in NYC in large numbers. Their music is a unique combination of Arawak, Carib and African influences.

This event will showcase a traditional type of Garifuna song, the arumahani, which is now endangered and rarely performed for the public. The group Libaña Maraza will perform several arumahani songs followed by a discussion with Daniel Kaufman and James Lovell about their on-going documentation project funded by the Endangered Language Documentation Programme.

Admission is $10.00. Buy advance tickets here.
