Fodor's Review

In Hopkins you can watch local Garífuna boys hone their drumming skills at the Lebeha Drumming Center. Lebeha means "the end" in the Garífuna language, a reference to the school's location at a small guesthouse with a bar, budget rooms, and cabins. Visitors are welcome. The drums, mostly made by a noted drum maker in Dangriga, Austin Rodriquez, are of mahogany or mayflower wood, with deerskin on the drumhead. Other instruments include shakas, or shakers, calabash gourds filled with fruit seeds and turtle shells. The drumming goes on nightly, though most activity is on weekends. Donations are accepted. You can take drumming lessons and purchase a CD of Lebeha drumming.
