Over 10 years as an artist, Honduras' Aurelio Martinez again graced the KEXP live room to share his unique blend of Caribbean folk pop and cultural activism and showcase tracks from his recently released album, Lándini. Aurelio’s musical heart beats with very personal, complexly simple tales that drip through his raspy voice and catchy cumbia melodies. The sometime politician is known as much for his arsenal of innately talented tunes as his commitment and passion to the cause of raising awareness and appreciation for Garifuna music and culture. Watch the full set of his recent session and open your ears and your heart to the magic of Aurelio.
