Seventy-four-year-old Paul Nabor hails from Punta Gorda, a
sleepy, coastal town of 6,000 in southern Belize. This parandero,
or old master of the Paranda musical style, is also a buyei,
a spirit medium and healer who attends to his congregation at
a Garifuna temple he built in Punta Gorda.
Record producer Ivan Duran was introduced to Nabor's music
by Punta Rocker Andy Palacio and recorded him for inclusion
on the album Paranda, which showcases an endangered style
of music performed by Garifuna men from Honduras, Guatemala
and Belize in their 60s, 70s, even up into their 90s.
