)-- Today marks the beginning of a new exciting chapter in the history of the Garifuna community, the launch of Garifuna Music Download website, GariMP3.com.
GariMP3.com opens up its digital doors with over 50 downloadable songs and have secured contracts to over 300 songs, which will become part of the GariMP3 platform in the upcoming days. Well known artists from Belize and Honduras were included in the initial launch and there are plans to add artists from Guatemala. After months of planning and development it became very clear that the launch would not be complete without the inclusion of popular Artists such as Aziatic, Lova Boy, DRRD, Menor Menor and Gatote. Each of these Artists bring a unique set of memorable and impressive talent to showcase to the world: Aziatic’s Jam 96X album, Lova Boy’s Victorious album, DRRD’s Las Luces Se Apagan single, Menor Menor’s Inevitable single and Gatote’s Cada Dia single.
Finding good music by Garifuna Artists has been a challenge... Until now, that is. GariMP3.com exists for the main purpose of helping the audience find, sample and download music. Throughout the years, the Garifuna community had been known for its hidden musical talent, however, those talents remained undiscovered due to the lack of proper distribution. GariMP3 makes the Garifuna Music fully discoverable and instantly accessible. Users may browse or search for artists, albums and songs; sample music; rate artists; have fun adding items to their favorites and have great discussions about the artists with other fans. Lyrics of the songs can also be read for those songs that include lyrics. For those Artists or Executives interested in having their materials offered through GariMP3.com, they may read the FAQ page for details.
GariMP3.com is a platform that provides a marketplace to offer and acquire digital goods, includung music, eBooks and eMagazines among many.
Who are the Garinagu (plural of Garifuna)
The Garinagu are descendants of Carib, Arawak and West African people who live in the coastal regions of Central America: Belize, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. Since they refused to submit to slavery, the Garifuna managed to preserve both their African roots and their Amerindian heritage, a fusion resulting in a unique ethnicity considered indigenous to the Americas. In 2001, UNESCO proclaimed the language, dance and music of the Garifuna as a Masterpiece of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity.
