On Wednesday, July 20th, the Belize Tourism Board and the National Institute for Culture and History launched a music program at the PGIA. The music program guarantees Belize one of the best welcome presentations in the world. Seleni Matus said that it is a first-in-its-kind program and expects visitors to be pleased at the sound of relaxing cultural music while going through customs, immigration and baggage claim procedures. Because it is not as hectic as other international airports, arriving at PGIA is already a refreshing experience. The Belizean Beats program now makes it exceptional.

The National Institute of Culture and History is equally proud to be a part of this initiative. Through the program, upcoming local bands will have the opportunity to showcase their skills. The first featured band is the Larubeya Boys. The band is set up in a corner of the baggage claim area and there are advertisement monitors on both sides of the stage. The advertisements featured include top destinations and local products; including Belikin of course. Other bands will eventually have the opportunity to secure the welcome gig and as the tourist season picks up the presentation should improve as well.
