“The drums are the primary musical instruments of the Garifuna and these are used for ritual as well as secular purposes.”- from UNESCO’s Declaration of Garifuna culture as a masterpiece of the oral and intangible heritage of humanity.
Though I travel at least a week out of every month, I rarely bring home souvenirs.
I like practical things, things that won’t clutter, things that won’t require dusting.
I also like things that fit easily into my backpack. I travel light.
The Garifuna drum didn’t exactly fit into that category.
