Event Description

The Afro-Latin-Caribbean genre of Punta Rock is the creation of Garifuna artist Pen Cayetano from Belize in the 20th century and has served as a tool for Garifunas from around the world to preserve the essence of Garifuna culture, music and dance. The genre is popular along the Central American Caribbean coast of Guatemala, Belize, Honduras and Nicaragua. In the United States, the urban fusion and influence has made Urban Punta Rock very popular in New York, Los Chicago, Miami, Atlanta, Seattle, Boston and Detroit to name a few cities. Garifunas are descendants of the Black Caribs, Arawaks and free blacks from the island of St. Vincent’s who were exiled and arrived in Roatan (Honduras) on April 12, 1797 due to their resistance to British rule and colonization. In 1947, the government of Belize granted to have November 19 as a Holiday, paying tribute to the arrival of the Garifuna to the country. The movement was led by community leader and organizer, Thomas Vincent Ramos. In the United States, Garifuna Settlement was first celebrated in the 1960’s organized by young Garifuna leaders in the city of Los Angeles. Today, this celebration is held and proclaimed in 10 states across the United States. In the state of New York, the New York Legislature honors Garifuna Heritage Month from March 11 to April 12 every year that includes a pilgrimage to the state Capitol of Albany and awards ceremony, dinner gala in the South Bronx. The most known Punta Rock artist is the late Andy Palacio from Belize whom in 2007 achieved the #1 spot in the world music chart for the release of “watina” by Stone Tree Records. The album not only set a new standard but open new doors for upcoming Punta Rock artists like Lova Boy, Supa G, Lil June and GX Team among a cast of talented group of musicians whom are using the genre to promote and preserve the rich history of Garifuna culture. In addition to Mr. Palacio, other musicians include: Aziatic, Mohobub Flores, Aurelio Martinez, Ervin Arzu, Nildo Colon, Tulio Ramirez, Frank Ruiz, Marcony Star and the late Jimmy Suazo from Honduras.
