DESCRIPTION

Punta Soul is the intergenerational story of an inspiring musical journey. Through its intimate
portraits of Garifuna musicians such as Andy Palacio, Punta Soul chronicles the evolution of
popular Garifuna music from Belize. The Garifuna, an afro-indigenous people exiled from the
Caribbean to the coast of Central America in 1798, have carried on a rich and vibrant culture
whose expression is found in the electric sound called “punta rock” and the more soulful
“paranda.” Punta Soul explores the role of the music in Beliz e’s cultural awakening.
