Umalali

Recorded in a hut on the coast of Belize and later remastered, this collection of traditional folk songs from Latin American coastal communities is a mix of African-inspired rhythms and melodic, husky voices. The Garifuna, descendants of shipwrecked African slaves and the local Carib and Arawak people, are famous for their unique style of Afro-Caribbean music, and Umalali is the result of a 10-year journey to record the historic contribution of women to Garifuna culture and art. What follows is a hip-shaking album with musical, as well as historical, currency.
