Food Garifuna: Vibrant, Soulful, African
The food is as zesty as the music. With large numbers engaged in fishing, Garinagu cuisine is trademarked by fresh fish and seafood, enhanced by the nutty sweet flavor of coconut. Tapado, a favorite in Livingston, is a rich fish-and-seafood stew with green and ripe plantains, yams, tomato and herbs, simmered in coconut milk.

World Music Features Cheikh Lo
Raised in Burkina Faso, Lô was taken with music when he was still very young. At 10, when he picked up the traditional drums of his Senegalese ancestry, he’d already been exposed to the varied rhythms of the continent thanks to itinerant Africans who came to call at his family’s adopted home.

Ana Moura is prime amongst the filhoas, or godchildren of fado. Her fado is quintessential—deeply emotional without being maudlin, it’s elegant and polished yet honest and spare.
