Friday, February 01, 2008
Andy Palacio –- a major star in Belize -– was a cultural ambassador of the Garifuna ethnic minority. He died suddenly in late January, at age 47. Palacio visited Studio 360 last July to perform songs from his album Watina, which went on to many critics top-10 lists for 2007. Here is Kurt’s interview with him, and Palacio’s live performance.
