Brazil culture and Brazil traditions
Being of Latin American culture, the Brazilian traditions and
customs are of immense diversity, with important influences
from Europe, the indigenous South American people, people from
Africa and Asia.
Also largely influenced early on in its history by the
Portuguese's colonisation, Portuguese language and many other
of its cultural elements, Brasil has evolved into a society that
exudes mixed unity; a claim many countries pride themselves on,
yet come no where near to achieving the Brazilian harmoneous
The mere mention of Brazil or Brazil people, is synonomous with
Brazil carnivals and beautiful sunny
beaches. While these are all wonderful aspects of the Brazilian
culture and traditions, they are by no means the best of
everything Brasil has to offer.
The culture of Brasil happens to be a real mixture of different
races and ethnicities, all of which of course, add to the
Brazilian diversity. Unlike most other Latin American countries
where the Indian population is obvious, in Brazil's case there
is no such distinction. Interracial marriages have taken place
to the extent where there is a blurring of racial lines.
The phrase 'big melting pot' really rings true of the
cultures in Brazil, Brazilian traditions and the Brazil people. When
you consider Brazil's vast landscape, its indigenous people,
the eclectic mix of immigrants who also brought a wide variety of
their own country's cultures, traditions and cuisines, it is little
wonder that the traditions and cultures of Brazil today make up a
unique and rich blend of diversity in itself.
