The city is known as the cultural capital for the Garifuna, and was the birthplace of Punta Rock. Today, many top Punta artists live there, including Titiman Flores and Mohobub Flores. Sadly, like most of the region, there are only a few Paranderos left in Dangriga, and Aranda is the only musician in the city still playing Paranda.

Aranda bought his first guitar at the age of 15, a guitar that was destroyed by Hurricane Hattie of 1961, a hurricane that destroyed much of Dangriga. Hundreds were killed, including Aranda's uncle Oscario who taught him how to play Paranda. Junior Aranda still sings about Hattie, an event that is still vivid for all Garifuna of his generation.
