Editors’ Notes Aurelio Martinez is a star of paranda, music of the Garifuna people of Central America, and his playful melodies and darting rhythms reflect his culture’s ancestry in West Africa and the Caribbean. Recorded with a live band, this album presents reinvigorated takes on Aurelio’s favourite songs from his 30-year career. On “Dondo” and “Yange”, the interplay between his yearning vocal and Guayo Cedeño’s spry guitar is hypnotic, while “Lumalali Limaniga” finds aching beauty in—briefly—slowing the pace.
