Product Notes

Among the Garìfuna of the Atlantic Coast of Honduras and far beyond, Tulio's surname of Laboriel is the equivalent of a pedigree and the stamp of the pioneering spirit. His grandfather, Juan Jose Laboriel, broke ground in the 1950's as the first black actor ever to appear in a Mexican movies, and Hondura's first (and still today only)international film artist. Juan Jose's son, Johnny (Tulio's Uncle), introduced rock en espanol to Mexico, where he still lives and works. Juan Jose's other son, Abraham, (also Tulio's uncle) is a retired bass player whose legendary career spans four decades and whose fate intertwines with the greatest names in Jazz and r&b. Tulio Laboriel continues his pioneering family tradition as the very definition of today's baladeer: souful, sweet and spirited. Graced with the unusual distinction of a black Latin American who sings in a variety of styles in both English and Spanish, he's crafted and aesthetic all his own based on his ancestral Garifuna rhythms and enriched by a seamles, shimmering swing of global influences including calypso, r&b, Tex Mex, classic Latin American, Salsa and other genres.
