Singer, songwriter Paul Nabor recovers from mild stroke

83 year old Paul Nabor was admitted to the KHMH on Friday, and is recovering from what doctors fear is a mild stroke. Nabor, as most of us know, is a genuine national treasure. He is considered the most prolific and relevant living songwriter in the Garifuna culture.

He is responsible for a number of songs that have become touchstones of the Garifuna musical tradition, most notably the anthemic Naguya Nei – which translates to “I am moving on.” And as of Friday night, the news is that the grand old man of paranda is showing signs of improvement after a scary night.

The last time we saw an energetic Paul Nabor giving one of his classic performances was on May twenty ninth 2004. He was in concert with another great musical talent the late Andy Palacio.

Eighty three year old Paul Nabor affectionately referred to as Nabi was visibly frail as he was taken from the plane, placed on a gurney and put into an ambulance and taken to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital.

And if he has anything to do with it Paul Nabor will continue to do his best to inspire and entertain us. Paul Nabor remains in a stable condition at the KHMH. Source: 7 News Belize
