Culture Intro

It is nearly impossible to go to Bolivia without being fully embedded in its vibrant culture on a daily basis. Much of Bolivian culture is infused with Inca, Aymara and Spanish influences, resulting in an eclectic native-European mix of traditions. Of all of South America┬┤s countries, Bolivia appears to be the most tightly-tied to its indigenous populations, which is obvious when exploring the country┬┤s dress, art, music and dance. Walking among the women in their indigenous dress will make you feel as if you are in a different universe entirely and will remind you how many of these cultural customs still remain untouched from the modern world. Widespread Andean music, a trademark of Bolivian culture, is equally preserved and can be enjoyed during festivals like Carnaval or at pe├▒as, venues that showcase folkloric music. F├║tbol is an important cultural fixture as well, and you will find that even the smallest, poorest Bolivian villages will often be complete with soccer fields.
