   The Story
Andy Palacio, is not only Belize's most popular musician and performing artist, but a serious music and cultural archivist with a deep commitment to preserving the values of his Garifuna culture.

Born and raised in the coastal village of Barranco, Andy grew up listening to traditional Garifuna music as well as imported sounds coming over the radio from neighboring Honduras, Guatemala and the United States.

He began writing his own songs and gained stature as a musician and energetic Garifuna artist. During 1987 he was able to hone his skills after being invited to work in London with Cultural Partnerships Limited, a community based arts organization.

Returning home to Belize with new skills and a four track recording system, he helped found "Sunrise", an organization dedicated to preserving, documenting and distributing Belizean music. While his academic training and self-scholarship allowed for his on-going documentation of Garifuna culture through lyrics and music, it has been his exuberance as a performer that gained world-wide recognition.

Since 1988, Andy has gained enormous popularity both in Belize and abroad, having played before audiences in the Caribbean, the Americas and Europe. He has hosted his own highly rated television show and was the first Belizean musician whose video was aired over international television stations.

Andy has been twice recognized by the Caribbean Music Awards, as 1991's "Best New Artist" and as a presenter in 1992, both events taking place at New York City's famed Apollo Theatre. He lives in Belize where he continues his work in promoting Garifuna arts, music and culture.
