“I have Punta Rock in my blood and it is a part of my culture. And what other way to go than to do your culture and it was easy for me, having that it is in my blood and people who are my family such as Supa G Madness, who is Supa G’s bigger brother. Punta Survives, the idea came from having been to nightclubs and other parties, I hardly hear Punta Rock di play like that. I think that for some reason or the other, it di get lost. So instantly, I attacked and I came up with “Punta Survives.” I mean what can kill culture? Only its people. So “Punta Survives” is a reality check kinda project; that nothing can kill Punta Rock and other cultural music.”

“We’ve had experience with what is called multi-layered art: whether it is music, illustration, book publishing, poetry and music is an important part of everything that we do. My entry into the arts was with Ivan Duran who has gone on to do amazing things globally and this today is an example of what can happen when we come together as an artistic community; the power that we can bring with our voice. And this is something we take seriously because every book, every CD, every DVD, every cultural product that is put into the public space deserves not just recognition and acknowledgement, but celebration.”

“The whole insight of it is just to show other artists that we noh supposed to take ourselves lightly ina what we do. We could do things as big as whoever do it as big as whoever do it big dah Belize City and beyond. So to me this is just a stepping stone to show artist that it is a stepping stone and great work do pay off.”
