The Belize Tourism Board also expressed its sincerest condolences to the family, friends and fans of Parandero, Paul Nabor.
A release from the BTB states and we quote “While we are saddened by the news of his passing, we join the rest of the country to recognize and celebrate Nabor’s achievements and contributions to Belize’s music industry.” End quote.
In 2011 and 2004, Paul Nabor was honored for his contribution to culture and music at the Tribute to Belizean Patriots with the Order of Distinction and Meritorious Service Award, respectively.
In 2004, the international icon, who was fluent in English, Spanish and Garifuna, was bestowed with the honorable title of Distinguished Guest, during a visit to Tegucigalpa, Honduras. While there for the release of fellow Paranda musician, Aurelio Martinez’s Garifuna Soul album, Nabor received a signed proclamation from the officials in Honduras; an honor which further cemented his popularity, not only in Belize, but in the region.
The BTB’s release ends by stating and we quote “Punta Gorda has lost one of its sons. Belize has lost one of its greats. The Belize Tourism Board is honored and privileged to have called Paul Nabor one of Belize’s most prominent music and cultural icons. He has served Belize well.” End of quote.
