El-Salvador – Culture

Salvadorian culture is influenced by Native American culture as well as Latin American culture. The country has a rich history of folk tales and legends, but written literature didn’t develop until during the Spanish colonial rule. Visual arts, including ceramics, textiles, and painting, are important to Salvadorian heritage and culture. Music and dance are crucial parts of Salvadorian culture. Traditional music is played with instruments like marimba, flutes, drums, guitars, and gourds. Over 50% of the population of El Salvador identifies as Roman Catholic.
