Describe Latin American Cultures

Culture of Latin American is the formal or informal expression of the persons of Latin America, and it involves high culture (literature, high art) and popular culture that are music, folk art and dance also religion and other customary practices.

Definitions of Latin America differ. From a cultural perspective, Latin America usually includes those parts of the Americas in which Portuguese, Spanish, and French prevail: Mexico, most of the area of Central America, and South America. There is also a significant Latin American cultural presence in the United States (for example California and the Southwest, and cities like New York and Miami). There is as well increasing attention to the relations between Latin America and the Caribbean as a whole.

The richness of Latin American culture is the product of many effects that are as follow:

Pre-Columbian cultures, whose significance is today particularly notable in countries like Mexico, Guatemala, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia and Paraguay.

European colonial culture, owing to the region''s history of colonization by Spain, Portugal, and France. European influence is specifically marked in so-called high culture, like literature, painting, and music. Furthermore, this imperial history left an enduring mark of their influence in their languages that are spoken throughout Central (including the Caribbean), South America and North America (Mexico and many parts of the United States).

19th and 20th century immigration (for example from Germany, France, Spain, Italy, and Eastern Europe) also transformed especially countries like Argentina, Uruguay, Brazil (particular the southeast and southern regions), Venezuela, Cuba, Chile, and Mexico (particularly the northern region).

Chinese, Korean and Japanese immigration affected the culture in Brazil, Cuba, Guatemala, Mexico, Panama and Peru

The introduction of slaves from Africa that has influenced for example dance, cuisine, and religion, especially in countries like Dominican Republic, Brazil, Panama, Peru, Venezuela, Colombia, Haiti, Cuba, Mexico and Puerto Rico.
