One of the most remarkable and passionate Garifuna artists of his generation, Aurelio Martinez follows in the footsteps of the legendary Parranderos of the Caribbean coast of Central America. Acclaimed for both his preservation and modernization of this musical tradition, Aurelio’s virtuosity is found in his distinctive, soulful vocals and his talent as a songwriter. With the sea as his constant companion, Aurelio makes music that spans tragic history and ancestral ceremonies, music sparked by a childhood in a tiny coastal hamlet and the spirit of his late friend and mentor, Garifuna musical icon Andy Palacio. Aurelio is the tradition-bearer for a unique culture with African, Caribbean Indian, and Latin influences, but also a thoroughly modern artist determined to break new ground for his age-old roots.
