The albums are judged for overall enjoyment, creativity, musicianship, production, consistency, originality, vision and that elusive ‘duende’ that makes them stand out from the crowd.
In the review of Laru Beya on the WorldMusicCo website, they write:
“Aurelio is a highly talented musician, conscious composer and passionate performer with an excellent band behind him, as well as being the prime advocate for a unique culture. If anyone is going to put the Garifuna culture onto the map, it’s Aurelio Martínez.”
