Aziatic Body Moving Drum Music

Vince Lewis aka Aziatic is here. After ten years in the making, a heartbeat still pounds for the meaning of excitement . While many lay claim to be the King of Punta, he settles with The Son Of Hopkins. A beautiful coastal Village in the Stann Creek District of Belize . This humbled Garifuna Entertainer and Investor is know as a game changer. Better yet the hardest working Puntarock Artist to date. While demanding an aggressive hip shaking response to his music, Aziatic carved out a style of his own "Punta Pop". And a portfolio like no other, Singer/Song Writer/Composer/Event Planner/Concert Promoter/ Producer and Director.
Awareness and pride is what a mother instilled in her only son. Where he was raised, Garifuna Music, Food and Dance transcended through the atmosphere. The voices of elders telling stories through music would capture his attention. As well as the smell of fresh baked Cassava Bread and fried Fish. The soul of being Garifuna was not to be forgotten.
At a young age, his family migrated to the United States of America and exchanged the Tropical Climate of the Mosquito Coast with the Big Apple, in the winter time covered with snow. For five years New York was home and by the mid 80's his family headed west to Los Angeles California. A place where some of the world's biggest Athletes, Entertainers and Movie Stars reside.
With a bloodline in music and a distinct voice, Aziatic's journey would lead him to combine traditional Garifuna Roots Music with Melodic Pop Elements. What followed was a hybrid version of Puntarock that experimented with both genre's. On return visits to Belize in the mid 90's, Aziatic was embraced by a flourishing Puntarock scene with highly successful concerts and a name never to be lost in the crowed. The hits poured out and so did a local following in Los Angeles, Chicago, New York and Belize.
At home in both worlds and inspired by Hip Hop Culture, R&B and Michael Jackson, Aziatic soon realized that more needed to be done for the music and also his peers. This he remembered would not be easy.

After blowing up the scene with his introduction album "Jam 96X", Aziatic is still the most talked about personality with many accomplishments. As an Entertainer / Producer and Concert Promoter, Aziatic has worked vigorously over the past fourteen years to introduce his peers to fans in the United States, with His "Best of the Best" Punta Rock Concerts and His "One of One" Productions.
Aziatic figured out early that, Punta Music needed about a million dollars worth of investment just to stay alive. With that, he gave up a lot of his personal time and invested heavily when he decided to be a part of the solution by cutting back on his performances and working hand in hand with other entertainers.

Today it turns out that during that period of time, his fans were not getting Aziatic at his best. As he admitted, he was more focused on promoting other performers like Supa G, Lloyd, Reckless, Griga Boys, Mohobub, Punta Rebels, Andy Palacio and countless others.
It wasn't until early 2008 while answering emails on his Myspace page that Aziatic decided to do something special for the people who have been supporting him for over a decade. With that he released "Yugadan" DVD. It delivered a side of him that fans had never seen. Cameras followed him to Belize, Chicago, New York and Los Angeles. Today "The Son Of Hopkins" is back on track and ready to give his fans a bag full of entertainment.
