Culture Of The Philippines
The CULTURE OF THE PHILIPPINES is a combination of cultures of the East and West . The Philippines was first settled by Negritos ; today, although few in numbers, they preserve a very traditional way of life and culture. After them, the Austronesians arrived on the archipelago. Today, the Austronesian culture is strongly evident in the ethnicities, languages, cuisine, music, dance and almost every aspect of the culture. These Austronesians engaged in trading with other Austronesians, particularly in the neighbouring nations of Indonesia , Malaysia and Brunei . They also traded with the mainland Southeast Asia , as well as Japan , Korea , China , the Indian subcontinent and Arabia . As a result, some of these cultures marked their influences on Philippine culture
