The Maldives can rather be called as a multi-cultural country today because it has people from many countries in it trying to establish their own rituals and beliefs. Thus, the features show similarities with southeast Asian, Arabian and African cultures.
Language and Religion
Dhivehi is the local language in the Maldives while Islam is the main religion. People in the country know English very well, and this has become a plus point for Male tourism. The Maldives celebrate Muslim festivals like Ramazan in a grand scale and follow the Islamic calendar.
Maldivian food is a rich assemblage of local flavours with noticeable influences from countries nearby. When it comes to food this island is the best to have beachfront dining at, and when you are selecting your Maldives beach resort, make sure they facilitate this for you.
People in the Maldives are quite friendly and pleasant. You may experience the same hospitality in all most all the hotels in Male including The Residence Maldives by Cenizaro. Most of the people are educated, and even women go for work in some families breaking the traditions.
Music and dance
Bodu Beru is the most popular style of music in Male and all you can hear are sounds of drums all along in different frequencies. This is generally performed by a group of 15-20 men where they have all singers, drummers, and dancers.
