A culture just like its population
A former Portuguese colony, Cape Verde, independent since 1975, has a rich culture resulting from its African and Portuguese roots. Cesária Évora, now deceased, is its standard ambassador. World-famous, she contributed to the popularization of the morna, traditional Cape Verdean music, mainly thanks to her song Sodade.
This multi-colored culture is reflected in its population's composition since mestizo descendants of African slaves and Spanish and Portuguese Jews represent more than 2/3 of the people.
This is the number of inhabitants of Cape Verde in 2020, making it one of the least populated countries in Africa.
This is the year the archipelago's earned its independence.
This is the number of international airports in the archipelago is significant considering its size and location in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean.
