Iseiri Isanigu Cultural Group is a thriving group of Garifuna Americans whose families have migrated from Belize, Central America to Los Angeles, California. Our group’s mission is to preserve the Garifuna culture through traditional singing and dancing to the rhythm of the drums and to share our culture with others.

The words “Iseiri Isanigu” means “New Generation” in the Garifuna language.  As our elders get older, it is only fitting that the new generation carry on the traditions that have been laid out for us. We believe that we too can pass on our traditional song and dance to the younger generations.

Some of our recent performances include the 2016 Garifuna Settlement Day Celebration Mass in Los Angeles and performing at various events hosted by the Consul General of Belize Mr. Roland Yorke. We also performed at the 2015 Independence Day event hosted by the Honorary Consul General of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Dr. Cadrin Gil.
