Riding Roots – Chapter 4, 5 & 6
Chapter 4 – PAIS MUSICAL
Cabo Verde is a land of music, a mix between African rythms and its own original island styles. It is also the land of the Carnaval in the month of February. Another Brazilian influence can be found in the martial/dance art of capoeira.
Cabo Verde, the island of Sal, the city of Santa Maria, the local people, showed us a rich culture that we want to share with you. Bem Vindo no Cabo Verde!
