Belize’s Garifuna Collective Get the Party Started at Ohio City Stages

Wed 7/24 @ 7:30PM

Those who like to dance in the street to music from all over the world will be back in Hingetown this week when Garifuna Collective highlights the second of three City Stages concerts.

Hailing from Dangriga, Belize, the ensemble mixes electronic dance music with an array of sounds from Central America that reflect their diverse roots: the Garifuna people are descended from West African slaves brought to central America, and their language mixes English, Spanish and French with the tongues of indigenous cultures. They’ve performed their joyful, eclectic music with audiences around the world.

The Cleveland Museum of Art’s Studio Go will be on site from 5-9pm with pop-up art projects for all ages. Food trucks and a beer stand offer nourishment and refreshment. It’s free; if you won’t be dancing, you may want to bring a chair to set up in the closed-off street or a blanket to spread on the Transformer Station lawn.
