The King of Brukdong, Mr. Wilfred Peters is a Belizean national icon and one of the country's best loved musicians. 

Brukdong music reflects the journey of the African slave into the mahogany camps of Belize. It uses syncopated rhythms and call and response patterns firmly rooted in Africa, colored with the Belizean Creole language and experience. 

Brukdong became the music of the people, whether urban or rural.
