Culture of Manaus - the Indian Heritage


Constituted by an ample and deep assimilation of the Indian, European and Northeastern cultures, the Amazon culture has unique regional aspects.

The population exhibits a fundamentally western background despite the traditions and customs full of myths and beliefs resulting from the Indian shamans, from the Amazon medicinal plants.

The music, the dances, the theater, the plastic arts, and the literature reflect a unique style adapting the cultural heritage to the artistic trends of the contemporary world.

Such influence can be noted in the people of Manaus, in their way of being and behaving, in the language and in the artistic and cultural manifestations
