Pen Cayetano the King of Punta Rock and his family left Belize in the early nineties and migrated to Germany. After working out music with various musicians in the basement of his residency at Ahrhutstraße 8 in Ahrweiler his sons Beni and Ibo used to come down and listen to the sessions and tried the instruments after rehearsals. They were the first whom Pen started. Daughter Malí and wife Ingrid joined a little later and they formed the band “The Cayetanos” in 1998.
After teaching many children around the world he took the task to teach his kids. Cultural and musical lessons were in the beginning, they thought it was not hard, but along the road they found out it wasn’t an easy task. All kind of difficulties came up and they tried to get away from practising. But he was always there to guide them. Eight years passed with intensive learning.
The first public appearance of the Cayetanos was in 1998 in Ahrweiler. Since then the band performed and toured in many cities in Germany. They recorded their first album entitled “Punta Rock” in 2000. During a visit 2005 in Belize they performed in San Ignacio, San Pedro and Dangriga. 2006 they joined the stage with Nicole, a famous German singer. The Cayetanos have subsequently developed a status in Punta Rock, doing music nearly 10 years. ”Home Belize” was recorded in 2007 .
