Aurelio Martinez archiveSinger, guitarist, composer and percussionist, Aurelio Martínez, is one of Central America’s most gifted performers. The Honduras-born musician, recognised for his powerfully evocative voice, is a major tradition-bearer of the threatened Garifuna culture that fuses African and Caribbean-Indian roots. Carrying on his family’s musical tradition, Martínez played the drums in public at age six, and in his late teens formed the Garifuna ensemble, Lita Ariran. In 2004, he was named Newcomer of the Year by AfroPop Worldwide for his acclaimed first solo album, Garifuna Soul. Both a cultural and political spokesperson, he is the first Afro-descendent elected to the Honduran National Congress from the marginalised Atlántida region and is president of the Commission of Ethnic Peoples.
