Latin America and the Caribbean

Project Type



April 2023

Folk music in Latin American countries and the Caribbean is a vibrant expression of the region's diverse cultural heritage and historical influences. From the syncopated rhythms of Afro-Cuban music to the soulful melodies of Andean folk songs, each country boasts its own unique musical traditions that reflect the fusion of indigenous, African, European, and, in some cases, Asian influences. Instruments like the cuatro, maracas, charango, and steel pan resonate with the vibrant energy and colorful tapestry of Latin American and Caribbean cultures. Whether celebrating carnival in Brazil, dancing to salsa in Cuba, or serenading with mariachi in Mexico, folk music serves as a powerful medium for storytelling, cultural expression, and community celebration, embodying the spirit and identity of the region's people
