Reflecting the rich mix of people who make up the country, Belize music features a cultural blend of Kriol, Mestizo, Garifuna and Maya influences. Each culture brings unique instruments indicative of the musical origin. The authentic sounds of Belize music heard in intimate locations will evoke passion and relax you, whether you are an adventure traveler or on a beach vacation. Experiencing music is one of the best things to do while visiting Belize.
Mestizo, predominantly heard in Northern and Western Belize, made its way from Mexico and Guatemala, incorporating the melodies of marimba, tap drums and double bass.
Kriol, by contrast, can be found in more rural settings and makes use of drums, banjo, and even a donkey’s jawbone. Sounding similar to traditional calypso music, Kriol music has developed into a form called brokdong (named for broken-down calypso).
Unique to its own culture is Garifuna. Traditionally a folk style combining music and dance, Garifuna is now widely recognized for Punta and Punta rock, its popular dance forms.
Belize music – an easy way to experience culture during a family trip – has expanded to include styles popular in the Caribbean and Americas, so expect to hear local reggae, hip-hop and jazz around the country. It’s a reward for your soul as well as your ears.
