Águyuha Nidúheñu – Traditional Hungu Hungu

Águyuha Nidúheñu  is a traditional Hungu Hungu song in which the singer laments the passing of loved ones.  But he is comforted by the fact that he will be going to meet his ancestors in his next life.   The Garifuna “Nine- Night” or Beluria is a traditional spiritual ceremony in Garifuna culture that takes place nine nights after someone dies.  One recent version of the song can be found on the well-known “Watina” album by Andy Palacio and the Garifuna Collective.
