Savour the spicy and romantic flavours of Mexican music, from the sones of Veracruz to the boleros of Oaxaca.
Mexican culture is as diverse as its landscape. Its roots stretch back thousands of years to the Aztec, Maya, Zapotec and other Native American empires. Echoes of these indigenous cultures still resound loudly in the modern setting, informing all cultural expressions including language, food, art, architecture and, of course, music. While the Spanish imposed their language, culture and religion on the local populations, the result of 500 years of cross-cultural fusion is a remarkable blend of European and Native American culture, with elements of African influence sprinkled along the Gulf and Pacific coasts.
