Punta

The Garífuna, a people who lives on the Caribbean coast of Honduras, are descendants of African people and Caribbean natives belonging to the Arahaucos tribe.
The Garífuna celebrate their festivities dancing the region’s traditional rhythm called Punta. The name already points at the fact that it is danced on toes.
Originally a way of celebrating fertility, this dance has become an integral part of Honduras’ folklore.
The song called Sopa de Caracol, based on the Punta rhythm, became a huge hit throughout Latin America.
