The Guatemalan culture and the customs of Guatemala are very marked by Guatemalan history. The Guatemalans are mostly mestizos of Spanish and Mayan blood, while some peasants are pure descendants of the Maya. The Mayan civilization, which inhabited Guatemala today for almost 600 years before its decline in 900 AD. , has had a determining influence on the history of Guatemala. The multiculturality inherent in Guatemalan society has left its mark on customs, gastronomy and population.
Another important element of the culture of Guatemala is its music and its clothing. The inhabitants of Guatemala are famous for their percussion ensembles that make up the marimba, the national instrument. Guatemalan fashion is also well known for its use of brightly colored yarn fabrics, capes, shirts, blouses, dresses and skirts. This is another reflection of Guatemalan history, as brightly colored fabrics enjoyed great popularity among the Maya.
