What is going on within the New York City Garifuna Community that compels Aurelio to make such a statement? What is the dispute between these two men that necessitates that Aurelio make such a public statement–especially considering that just last year, Aurelio was the subject of (and performed in) a concert in tribute to Aurelio’s pioneering 30 year music career produced by Mr. Avila? Does anyone know? Does anyone have anything to say about this? The speech is in Spanish. If you have the time, look at it.

¿Qué está pasando dentro con la Comunidad Garifuna desde la Ciudad de Nueva York que obliga a Aurelio Martinez para hacer tal afirmación? ¿Cuál es la diferencia entre estos dos hombres que hace necesario que Aurelio hacer tal declaración pública – especialmente teniendo en cuenta que sólounl año pasado, Aurelio fue objeto de (y se cantó en) un concierto en homenaje al pionero carrera musical de 30 años de Aurelio producido por el Sr. Ávila? ¿Alguien sabe? ¿Alguien tiene algo que decir al respecto? El discurso está en español. Si tienes el tiempo, mirarlo.
