The culture of Argentina

The culture of Argentina is as varied as the country’s geography and is composed of a mix of ethnic groups. Modern Argentine culture has been largely influenced by ItalianSpanish and other European immigration, although there are lesser elements of Amerindian and African influences, particularly in the fields of music and art. Buenos Aires, its cultural capital, is largely characterized by both the prevalence of people of European descent, and of conscious imitation of European styles in architecture.[1] Museums, cinemas, and galleries are abundant in all the large urban centers, as well as traditional establishments such as literary bars, or bars offering live music of a variety of genres.
