About the Author:

Born in Ethiopia, Lebawit Lily Girma was nine months old when her parents moved the entire family to the West African, French-speaking country of Côte d'Ivoire. She has loved travel ever since, exploring cultures, learning languages--she speaks four fluently--and studying on several continents, including Europe and the Americas.

After settling in the United States and practicing law for seven years, Lily took a leap of faith and went on sabbatical to pursue her true passions: travel, writing, and photography. Her first visit to Belize took place in the summer of 2010s--she explored three districts in three weeks and fell in love with the Jewel, determined to return. As fate would have it, a year later, Lily was commissioned as an in-house writer and photographer for the Belize Tourism Board. She explored all of Belize's districts extensively, sharing her adventures through a collection of over 100 online articles, blog posts, and photo essays. More than anything, the people and the diverse cultures of Belize happily coexisting in one place struck a chord, reminding her of her own life experience. Lily later returned every year for long term stays, immersing herself even further and publishing freelance articles on Belize.

Her writing and photography have been published by CNN Travel, BBC Travel, New York Magazine, The Latin Kitchen, Every Day With Rachael Ray, Morning Calm (Korean Air), The Travel Channel, AFAR, The New York Times Magazine, International Living Magazine, Travel and Escape, and American Way Magazine, among others.

When not in the United States, Lily splits her time between Belize and other parts of the Caribbean.

Rhythms of Belize

Belize’s annual bashes are the perfect way to glimpse Belizeans’ celebratory spirit and get a taste of the music more than six genres, each unique to a particular region and culture.

Summer Fiestas: (July) Towns celebrate their patron saints with giant fairs, games, concerts, and plenty of outdoor grills all set up inside the town stadium. Visit Benque Viejo del Carmen’s Benque Fiesta, Orange Walk’s Fiestarama, and Ambergris Caye’s Día de San Pedro.

Deer Dance Festival: (Aug.) San Antonio Village showcases all things Mayan. The highlight is a deer dance costume performance (an ancient ritual reenacting the hunting of a deer) to traditional Mayan harps.

Pan Yaad: (Sept.) This lively seaside, steelpan concert is a treat, with up to five bands from around Belize performing at Belize City’s House of Culture.

Belize City Carnival: (mid-Sept.) Belize City hosts a colorful Caribbean Carnival. Orange Walk Town’s Mestizo-themed Orange Walk Carnival is held on September 21, Belize’s Independence Day. San Pedro celebrates its carnival in February.

Garífuna Settlement Day: (Nov. 18) Dangriga turns into a massive street party on the eve of Garífuna Settlement Day. Don’t miss the drumming and punta dancing under the Wadani Shed.

Mr. Peters’ Brokdong Bram: (Dec.) A traditional brokdong bram celebration takes place in the village of Gales Point at Christmastime. Brokdong is a festive Creole genre blending various instruments, including drums, maracas, banjo, and even the jawbone of an ass (a donkey)!
