Correction On Author of song "Sopa de Caracol"
Dato Vasquez | Dallas, Texas, Belizean writer | 07/25/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The Original name of this song is "Conch Soup" which means in Spanish "Sopa de Caracol". The Author's name is Chico Ramos, (an African descendant and now more widely known as "Garifuna"} is a citizen of the country of Belize, the ONLY English speaking country in Central America, situated between Guatemala & Mexico on the Caribbean shore. Chico Ramos wrote this song while living in Stann Creek (now known as "Dangriga")in 1987 and became a Hit in the country of Belize during the Independence Celebrations of Belize in the month of September of that same year. All rights and mentions for the words and music of this song should be given to Mr. Ramos.
The Hondurans (La Banda Blanca) made this song their own when they presented it on UNIVISION for the first time. Up to today this song is played by Banda Blanca and sang in Garifuna dialect although the members are not Garifuna in anyway."
