Lebeha Drumming Center
Lebeha Drumming Center Review
In the center of town you can watch local Garífuna boys hone their drumming skills at the Lebeha Drumming Center. Lebeha means "the end" in the Garífuna language, a reference to the school's location at a small guesthouse (rooms from BZ$35) and bar near the north end of the village. Visitors are welcome. The drums, mostly made by a noted drum maker in Dangriga, Austin Rodriquez, are of mahogany or mayflower wood, with deerskin on the drumhead. Other instruments include shakas, or shakers, calabash gourds filled with fruit seeds and turtle shells. The drumming goes on nightly, though the most activity is on weekends. Donations are accepted, and you can purchase a CD of Lebeha drumming. Drumming lessons are around BZ$30.
