The Cape Verde archipelago comprises 10 arid islands in the Atlantic Ocean between Africa and Brazil, and was originally populated by Portuguese slave traders.

Well known for its music, Cape Verdeans use humour and music to mitigate the harshness of their native soil. The Cape Verde culture is a melding of influences from Africa, Europe and America.
