Event description:

The Garifuna Jazz Ensemble brings awareness of the endangered language of the Garifuna people that was proclaimed a “Masterpiece and Oral Intangible Heritage of Humanity" by UNESCO. The Garinagu (plural) are a mixed culture of West Africans that intermarried with The Carib-Arawak Indians on the island of St. Vincent and The Grenadines. The Garifuna Jazz Ensemble presents this rich culture by fusing language, indigenous rhythms and traditional songs with elements and traditions of jazz.
