Saharan Vibe and Luso-Africa

Saharan Vibe is a blog by someone devoted to informing people about each individual country in Africa. The amount of time and effort that has gone into the blog is incredible. Please take a look!

There are five Portuguese speaking countries within the African continent:


Moçambique




Angola






Guiné-Bissau









Cabo Verde




São Tomé e Príncipe


Click on Moçambique, Angola and SãoTomé for pictures and extensive information about history and culture from Saharan Vibe's archives. Hopefully, there will be posts about Cabo Verde and Guinea Bissau soon.

Luso-Africa makes up a large portion of the Portuguese speaking world. These countries are part of the CPLP, to which all Portuguese-speaking countries belong. Along with a language, these countries share a history of colonization by Portugal (however bitter it may have been) a priceless musical traditional and artistic exchange. Along with cultural and national identity, people from Portugal to India share a common sense of culture within the Lusophone world.
