Honduras music styles vary. Honduran artists play anything from local music, such as the Garifuna punta style, to different Caribbean styles such as merengue, reggae, reggaeton, and salsa. This is Lidia Handal with his song “Jamas”
Honduran bandleader Guillermo Anderson sings with a voice high pitched and delicate as a tropical bird’s. His music is a melange of softly pulsating merengue polyrhythms.
