The Unique Cultures of Cape Verde

The Unique Cultures of Cape Verde

Cape Verde, officially the Republic of Cape Verde, is an island country, spanning an archipelago of 10 islands located in the central Atlantic Ocean, 570 kilometres off the coast of Western Africa.


Cape Verdean culture is a true mix of European and African; an assimilation engendered during the Portuguese occupation.  Nowadays, the traces of 400 years of Portuguese influence can still be found in architecture, lifestyle and the arts, but elements of African culture, be it in music, literature or arts, are omnipresent too.
