I’m happy to report that my article, “The Music of Belize,” originally published on the Matador Network, was selected and included this week in National Geographic Intelligent Travel Blog’s “The Radar“ feature.
Discovering the diverse music of Belize was one of the most unexpected and fun highlights of my three-month journey there, from July through September.
I was lucky to experience several concerts, fairs and carnivals around the country – all part of the pre-celebrations for Belize’s 30th Independence this year.
