dances and music in nicaragua

“El Gueguense” is a satirical drama that combines Spanish and indigenous theater, dance, and music. It is considered one of the most important works of the colonial era in Latin America. In 2005, UNESCO declared this play an important representation of Nicaraguan folklore, calling it a “masterpiece of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity.


Folklore

The best examples of Nicaraguan folklore can be found in the music and dance performed during towns’ patron-saint festivities. These folkloric celebrations of patron saints combine the Spanish colonial influence with indigenous celebratory elements.

Economy in nicaragua

Nicaragua’s economy is mainly focused on the agricultural industry. However, as the poorest country in Central America and the second poorest in the hemisphere, has widespread underemployment and poverty. The US-Central America Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA) has been in effect since April 2006 and has expanded export opportunities for many agricultural and manufactured goods. Textiles and apparel account for nearly 60% of Nicaragua’s exports, but increases in the minimum wage during the Ortega administration will likely erode its comparative advantage in this industry.

why do nicaragua people celebrate easter and semana santa

Easter or Semana Santa is celebrated for weeks in advance and December is just one big holiday. Too bad the pay is so bad here since you get so many days off. Many towns and cities have their own special observances.
