Sounds Inc. and their leaer Chico Ramos invented Punta, the dance sensation which has struck Latin America and New York over the last couple of years. They come from the Central American country of Belize. Central to punta is the percussive beat provided by empty turtle shells. Traditional punta music was characterised by singing to the beat of hollowed tree trunk drums. Modern punta retains the aggressive beat and vocal patterns of the traditional sound but involves percussion and frenetic dancing. Sounds Inc live on the Caribbean coast of Central America and are descended from African slaves and Caribbean Indians.
