Culture

Located at the crossways of the Indian Ocean shipping lanes on the main seaway around the Indian subcontinent, the Maldives has long been a meeting point for African, Arab, Malay and Indonesian mariners. Throughout the cen­ tu­ ries these influences have shaped the Maldivian way of life. This can be seen from the many facets of Maldivian lifestyle such as dining, music, art and craft.

Music
Bodu Beru is the most popular form of music and dance in the country, believed to have been introduced in the early 19th cen­ tury by African slaves. Historians believe that Thaara, which also holds a special place in local en­ ter­ tainment, have been in­ tro­ duced from the Middle East in the seventeenth century. Other forms of dance such as Bandiya Jehun have a strong South Asian flavor. Today west­ ern pop and Indian music is popular with the young and old.

Art & Craft
The Maldivians are skilled craftsmen. This can be seen in several of Maldivian arts and craft; the deft coral stone carvings at Hukuru Miskiiy, the intricate lacquer art, the fine mats woven by the women of Fioari in the south and the work of skilled calligraphers whose works old and new that can be viewed in mosques around the country.
