Born on the Caribbean coast of Honduras, vocalist, guitarist, and singer-songwriter Aurelio strives to preserve and find new ways to express his musical heritage. Aurelio’s music is founded in the Garifuna traditions of his African and Caribbean-Indian ancestors, and he is best known for his high-energy take on the Garifuna-infused pop genre punta rock. “With his talent, vision, charisma, and searing voice, Aurelio is a big part of the reason [Garifuna music] has achieved outsize recognition internationally” (NPR).
