Andy Palaco - a hero's welcome home

Andy Palacio sat down with lovefm yesterday to talk about his upcoming UNESCO award, the recent honor at WOMEX, and the attention the world has placed on Garifuna Music in the last year.
Here is a quote:
“There are very few persons who have been designated by UNESCO to
compete and be recognized as one of those persons is really
unbelievable. I accept this with great humility to be in such
distinguished company and to be called upon to fulfill such a dignified
role on behalf of my country, on behalf of my region, but working in
the global arena.”
The full article is worth a read.
