The Garifuna Collective (Belize)

Friday 3rd March 2023

Doors 7pm, Show 8pm


Party Time! We’re pushing some of the tables to the side, so there’ll be plenty of room to dance!

The meeting point where ancient meets modern…this music stretches forward defying the listener to pin it down. Whatever people mean about music being universal, surely that is the perfect demonstration of their argument
The Observer (UK)

Based in Belize, The Garifuna Collective are one of the most unique Afro-Caribbean bands on the planet. As representatives of the Garifuna people – a separate language and culture group spread across several countries in Central America – they harness the indomitable energy of their African and Indigenous ancestors, generating an irrepressible, positive energy every time they perform.

They have created feverish dance floors in over 30 countries across 5 continents and have been part of the most celebrated world music releases of all time, including the critically acclaimed Wátina – recipient of the Womex and BBC World Music Award and voted by Amazon as the Number One World Music Album of All Time.

Their most recent album ‘ABAN’ features some newer electronic and dub textures, reflecting the multi-generational nature of the group and their collective urge to keep moving into new musical territory.

The complex rhythms demand attention and quickly resolve themselves into a completely irresistible groove. When the melodies kick in on top of them, the lushness is overwhelming.” The Wall Street Journal.

This event has been developed in collaboration with South Gippsland Shire Council.
