The central region of Chile has a Mediterranean climate, while the highlands around the Andes, remain cold throughout the year.   more ...

Later the music of the Europeans, in particular of course the Spanish, had its own influence on local styles. Although the European styles became dominant, they also gave rise to new music, unique to the region.   more ...
