Culture

Like most African countries, São Tomé and Príncipe can showcase a rich visual art in the form of wood sculptures, carved masks and the like. But music is the most important cultural expression.

The music can be described as a mixture of Latin and African music, similar to that found in Cape Verde. The most popular vocalist, Gilberto Gil Umbelina, has held concerts in many parts of the world, and has lived abroad for half his life, mostly in Portugal.

  • Countryaah: Latest population statistics of Sao Tome and Principe, including religious profiles and major languages spoken as well as population growth rates in next three decades.

Theater is a popular public amusement and there are several theater companies that regularly tour the islands. When it comes to literature, poets such as Francisco Tenreiro (1921–1963) and Alda do Espiritu Santo (1926–2010) have made the most sense.
