This week’s workshop is being sponsored by the youth arm of the Battle of the Drums Secretariat. James Lovell who is one of the facilitators of the workshop says that the participants are being exposed to the Garifuna language retrieval through music, songs and rhymes.

“The Garifuna culture has been surviving for years and the youth must continue talking the torch of that journey to cultural survival everywhere they go,” says Lovell.

At the conclusion of the workshop the participants are expected to go back to their respective communities and schools and share what they learn with their peers through music, speaking the Garifuna language and the sharing of the rhymes.

They are being called upon to be ambassadors of the Garifuna culture.
