Warasa Garifuna Drum School
Warasa ("Our Culture") is a family owned and managed cultural tourism business. We started out borrowing our father's two drums and doing lessons out of small spare bedroom, and we have now grown to owning a beautiful custom-built thatch palapa and making over 30 of our own drums! We are passionate about preserving and passing-on our culture, to visitors and locals. The income we earn from offering activities to visitors allows us to offer free lessons to local children. Our Owner/Director, Ray, has been playing drums with his family group since he was five years old, and is a former drummer, dancer and singer with Belize National Dance Company. He has an infectious smile, and he always makes sure our guests have fun, but also take away valuable insight into our culture and the desire to inform others.
