The Lebeha Drumming Center can be found at the north end (the Lebeha) of Hopkins Village on the Caribbean shores of Belize.  Local Garifuna artists gather under the thatch to play drums, dance and pass on the culture to the next generation.  This is their second recording: Lebeha Boys: Lebeha Drumming (innova 209).
