21. Ecuador Culture
In addition to the numerous native cultures, Ecuador is home to a Mestizo culture,and a sizable AfroEcuadorian culture (approximately ½ million), the
Ecuador's population is estimated to be nearly 13 million people. The population is ethnically mixed: 55% mestizo (mixed indigenous - Caucasian), 25% Indigenous, 10% Caucasian, 9% African, and 1% other. Ecuador's many different peoples coexist peacefully. Although the population was heavily concentrated in the Andes highlands region a few decades ago, today it is divided about equally between that area and the coast. Migration toward cities - particularly Quito and Guayaquil - in all regions has increased the urban population to more than 50%. The rainforest region to the east of the mountains remains the most sparsely populated of Ecuador's three continental regions and contains only about 3% of the population. Culture Amazonian frontier towns, Pacific coast fishing villages, rambling old haciendas, packed markets, and colonial cities provide the stage on which Ecuador's cultures intermingle; each striving to maintain its own identity and history while also charting a meaningful path into the future. Eleven different peoples make up Ecuador's Indigenous population. By far the largest of these is the Andean Quichua, who number more than 2 million. In addition to the Quichua, the Otavalenos, Salasacas, and Saraguros - all modern-day couriers of the ancient tongue of the Incas - reside in the Ecuadorian Andes.

Ecuador's pre-Columbian peoples excelled in pottery, painting, sculpture, and gold and silver work. The Spaniards trained indigenous artists to produce colonial religious art, which can be seen in many churches and museums. The Quito School of the 17th and 18th centuries combined these two influences but was replaced by formalism after independence, which favored subjects such as heroes of the revolution and members of high society. Ecuador's colonial religious architecture is predominantly baroque, although domestic architecture tends to be simple and elegant, comprising whitewashed verandahed houses built around a central courtyard. Traditional Andean music has a distinctive haunting quality based on an unusual pentatonic scale. Wind and percussion instruments, including bamboo panpipes and flutes, are staples of the sound. Local crafts include fine examples of basketry, leather work, woodcarving, weaving, ceramics and jewelry. About 40% of Ecuador's present population are Indians, and another 40% are mestizos. The ethnicity of the coastal population changes from north to south. Esmeraldas has the highest percentage of Afro-Ecuadorians of any province, and it also has several Indian tribes upriver from the coast. Further south, the population is more mestizo - the typical Spanish-Indian mix prevalent through Latin America. The predominant religion is Roman Catholic, but there is a scattering of other Christian faiths. Indigenous Ecuadorians, while outwardly Catholic, tend to blend Catholicism with their traditional beliefs. Spanish is the main language, although most highland Indians are bilingual, with Quechua being their preferred language and Spanish their second tongue. Several small lowland groups speak their own languages. English is understood in the best hotels and in airline offices and travel agencies, but it's of little use elsewhere.

The Inca were a dynamic, rapidly advancing society. They originated in a pocket of Peru, but established a vast empire within a century. It dominated Peru and extended as far as Bolivia and central Chile. The Inca constructed massive, monumental cities. To communicate across their empire they laid wide, stone-paved highways thousands of kilometers long and sent chains of messengers along them. These mailmen passed each other records of the empire's status, which were coded in system of knots along a rope. A winded runner could even rest in the shade of trees planted along both sides of the road. Remarkably, the Canari, Quitu, and Caras were able to hold back Tupac-Yupanqui, though they proved less successful against his son, Huayna Capac. After conquering Ecuador, Huayna Capac indoctrinated the tribes to Quechua, the language of the Incas, which is still widely spoken in Ecuador. In celebration of his victory, Huayna Capac ordered a great city to be built at Tomebamba, near Cuenca. Its size and influence rivaled the capital of Cuzco in Perua rivalry that would mature with posterity. When he died in 1526, Huayna Capac divided the empire between his two sons, Atahualpa and Huascar. Atahualpa ruled the northern reaches from Tombebamba, while Huascar held court over the south from Cuzco. The split inheritance was an unconventional and fateful move, as the first Spaniards arrived in the same year. On the eve of Pizarro's expedition into the empire, the brothers entered into a civil war for complete control.

No word better describes Latin American and Caribbean realities than "transformation," as the region grapples with questions of cultural identity, globalization, urbanization, and environmental degradation.

Charles Darwin I Ecuador's climate is equally generous to the traveler. Embracing the Pacific, Ecuador rests squarely on the equator (hence its name). Here, seasons are defined more by rainfall than temperature. A warm rainy season lasts from January to April, and May through December is characterized by a cooler, drier period that is ideally timed for a summer trip. interKnowledge Corp

The Music of Ecuador reflects the multiethnic and multicultural character of the country, Ecuador´s Music has been influenced by African rhythms, traditional Andean music, and indigenous music from the jungle. The term "National Music" has come to be used to indicate a large variety of musical forms. The most popular of all is considered the Pasillo , which originates from the classic Viennese waltz. It is currently part of folk culture and has a slow rhythm, poetic and sentimental texts, and melancholy melodies. Other popular rhythms in Ecuadorian music are the Albazos, Pasacalles, Tonadas, Danzantes, Yaravies, Carnavales , etc. Many of them originate in rhythms that come directly from the music of the indigenous population. There are a great many orchestras of wind instruments in almost all the cities and populations of Ecuador. They are an essential part of all fiestas, funerals, and other social events. A group of black people very different from the rest of the Andean population inhabits the Chota River Valley of the north plains, near Colombia.

Literature SPANISH
The first important novel written in Ecuador was Cumanda , by Juan Leon Mera . This literary work appeared in 1879 and belongs to the romantic genre. The work´s backdrop is the majestic Ecuadorian jungle. The extraordinary narrative talents of Leon Mera, his ability to recreate settings and environments, and his close scrutiny of human behavior are all evident in this work. Cumanda is the starting point for the Ecuadorian novel. The name and work of Juan Montalvo are present in almost every Encyclopedia. After the success of his first literary attempt, Cosmopolita - whose themes include women, Hispanic America, Moorish poetry, freedom of the press, his religious beliefs, and liberty (one of his favorite topics) he continued to publish new work. A large portion of his literature was written in exile, without references, helped only by his prodigious memory. These books include: The Spectator, Moral Geometry, The Ecclesiastic Mercury, Las Catalinarias, The Seven Treatises (considered his "magnum opus"), The Chapters that Cervantes Forgot, and The Perpetual Dictatorship. His books have as much political character as literary, and created a new, refined, and polished style that made him one of the best and most celebrated writers of his time. Twenty five years after the appearance of Cumanda, Luis A. Martinez published To the Coast. This novel brings together, for the first time in the field of literature, the two principal Ecuadorian regions: the Sierra and the Costa. In it he did not follow old models, but looked fairly and with perspective at the human plight while trying to change the Ecuadorian novel objectively and subjectively. Salvador Ramirez, the hero of the story, sets out on a journey to the coast in search of new horizons with the goal of giving meaning to his life, plagued with complications. However, luck does not accompany him and he does not find what he had imagined for himself.

Ecuador's Culture
Colorful and Classical Societies

Like much of South America, Ecuadorian culture blends the influences of Spanish colonialism with the resilient traditions of pre-Columbian peoples. Although the population was heavily concentrated in the Andes highlands region a few decades ago, today it is divided about equally between that area and the coast. Migration toward cities - particularly Quito and Quayaquil - in all regions has increased the urban population to more than 50 percent. A large percentage of this population is children. Music Unites Ecuador's Society
In addition to the numerous native cultures, Ecuador is home to a Mestizo culture, and a sizable Afro-Ecuadorian culture (approximately a half-million), the descendants of African slaves who worked on coastal sugar plantations in the sixteenth century. Today's Afro-Ecuadorians are famous for their marimba music and dance festivals. Long before the Spanish conquest, and even much before the Inca civilization, the diverse native cultures of the region had rich musical traditions. Ancient flutes, trumpets, drums, and other musical artifacts have been found in tombs. Music was obviously important in the human and supernatural worlds of ancient Andean people. With the coming of the Spanish conquerors in the 16th century, accompanied by Catholic missionaries and African slaves, additional musical languages were introduced. Today, three principal racial and cultural strains - Indigenous, Spanish, and African - have evolved into distinctive musical styles. El Pasillo is slow, sad music that is played mainly with the guitar and rondin, a flute-like instrument consisting of several pipes. The El Pasacalle type of music has an upbeat rhythym and is excellent for dancing. El Yarabi is the most popular of the music from the Andes. It is very sentimental and great for listening.
