Traditional Music and Dances

Music and dance are integral parts of the Latino culture. Visiting any country in Latin America, one finds it difficult to not notice music in every corner. As Latinos have immigrated to the United States, they have also brought with them these traditions. There are local musical groups formed in Forks that have brought the traditional music from Mexico and Guatemala to the United States.
