Fodor's Review

In Hopkins you can watch young 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 near the north end of the village. Visitors are welcome. The drums 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.
