  1. Dance and music played a central role in the construction of nationalism in countries such as Brazil and Cuba, although their influence was different
  2. Local dances became progressively full part of the countries' cultures, although they often transgress the social order the different governments tried to enforce during the XIXth century
  3. Music and dances were also largely shaped by the various places and social spaces where they were performed

Dance and music represent a major part of the Latin American culture. The continent is indeed quite famous all over the world for the diverse dances it created such as tango, salsa or samba. Nowadays, events like the Carnival of Rio appeal people from very far countries in Brazil during one week. However, the features of the local culture are not new. They are a result of gradual historical processes and evolutions. They combine elements from European, African, Native Indian cultures to create an original movement.
