Culture and traditions of Cape Verde

Cape Verde is an archipelago formed by 10 islands of which 9 are inhabited. Cultures differ between them and language is the one that stands out the most. Each island has a different Creole or dialect but the official language is Portuguese, which is used in schools, public administration, the press and publications.

Cape Verdean culture is very rich. With different modalities and areas, language, music, crafts, literature, and religion are just some elements that are part, not only of the culture but also of the traditions existing in this small country in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean.
