Garifuna Collective's "Ayo"

A wonderful album saying goodbye ("Ayo") to Garifuna Collective's founder Andy Palacio, who died shortly after the release of Watina in 2007. Garifuna is a hybrid of African and Caribbean styles, born out of the slave trade in the 18th and 19th centuries and now mostly practiced in coastal communities of Belize, Guatemala, Nicaragua and Honduras. The album's been out on the Cumbancha label since early July.
