Music, Arts & Culture, Events Guam 

The Chamorro culture is a blend of Spanish, Micronesian, Asian and western influences that have inhabited Guam for the past 300 years.

  Music
Music is an integral aspect of an island lifestyle, and performances using traditional instruments, such as the belembaotuyan, are highlights of cultural presentations. The belembaotuyan, made from a hollow gourd and strung with a taut wire and pressed against ones bare stomach, creates a melodic sound enjoyed by all. The nose flute, once a long forgotten instrument, is now making a hearty return.
The Kantan Chamorro style of singing has been a favorite form of entertainment for generations.
