Join International House as we partner with UChicago Presents to bring you this virtual performance by Aurelio Martínez and the Garifuna Soul Band. A member of one of the last generations to grow up steeped in the Afro-Caribbean Garifuna tradition, singer, songwriter, and guitarist Aurelio Martínez has proven that this indigenous style of music is still alive and kicking.With a richly resonant voice and soulful acoustic songs, Martínez has identified himself as a bard of the people, a vital bearer of tradition with a subtle innovative streak. From his home in Honduras, Aurelio shares his high-energy music suffused with indigenous style in a special streaming performance as part of UChicago Presents' Music Without Borders Series.
Registration is required: $15 | Free for UChicago Students
