“Music you feel in your bones” responds a member of the Punta Rock band Garifuna New Generation when asked to describe their music and the genre they perform. Punta is strong, rhythmic, musical manifestation of the Garifuna people of Central America; a cultural explosion of African and Black Carid indigenous roots. Formed in 1994, band members, Alex, Eddie, Cocho, Dennis, Omar, and Steven, all of Guatemalean heritage, have traveled a long road of trials and tribulations that has culminated in the band’s musical debut, The Struggle.
Influenced by bands such as Punta rebels, Garifuna Kids and Labuga Boys, the band was assembled by foundersm Randy Arzu and Gilbert. The band has dedicated tha past ten years to developing their musical talents (each member plays a minimal of two instruments), and enriched their musical performance, learning and playing alongside other Punta bands. Garifuna New Generation has performed at numerous local venues in New York, including but not limited to Templo, Los Azules, the Bronx Masonic Temple, the Belizean festival in Brooklyn, Snug Harbor Cultural Center and appeared on Bronx Net (Channel 69) Centro America Show.
Garifuna New Generation looks forward to taking their music to the new levels; performing various styles of music within the Garifuna, Latin and Caribbean traditions; appealing to all age groups and introducing their music to people outside of the traditional Punta fan base.
