The Maldives is an island of celebration and its culture is enveloped in song, dance and music. The inhabitants of the collection of coral islands enjoy the influences of Indian music and songs. A vast percentage of the Maldivian songs are made to Hindi tunes and the dance movements follow those of South Indian traditions but the famous Maldivain drumming is quite similar to African performances and beats. The musical instrument of choice among the islanders is the Bulbul, a horizontal accordion like device. Stay at a Maldives Hotel that will let you experience the music and dance of the Islands. A great choice would be the Naladhu Maldives, one of the finest Maldives Island Resorts available.
