History & Owners

Hector Lambey, "Jabbar", was born and raised in Hopkins. He has operated a business under the name "Lebeha" and featuring Garifuna Drumming at this location for more than ten years.

"Lebeha" has been operated as a business since the mid nineteen nineties, originally a restaurant/bar, featuring drumming; it was located on the site of the present Drumming Center. In 2003 the first open thatch Drumming Center was rebuilt, more drums were purchased and with the addition of "Drumming Center" to "Lebeha", emphasis was directed to the local youths who joined him to help keep their culture alive. In 2007 Jabbar added the thatch cabana and sleeping huts to the property and January 2008 saw two beach cabanas added to the inventory. The large beach cabana was moved onto the property in 2008 and will be ready for rental January 2009.

"Lebeha" is Garifuna for "The End". In the nineteen nineties this was the end of the village. Today it is still the end, your journey
