Andy Vivian Palacio (02 December 1960 – 19 January 2008) was a Belizean Punta musician and government official. He was also a leading activist for the Garifuna people, who are descendants of West African, Central African, Island Carib, and Arawak people. Palacio was born and raised in the coastal village of Barranco in Belize and worked briefly as a teacher before turning to music. He received the award for "Best New Artist" at the Caribbean Music Awards in 1991, and was posthumously awarded the BBC3 Awards for World Music award in the Americas Category, in 2008 after he died of a massive and extensive stroke to the brain, a heart attack and respiratory failure.
