History And Culture
Formerly known as 'King's Island'
Very little has changed since ancient mariners first sailed these seas. Just one-sixth of the country’s 1,190 islands are inhabited – mostly peaceful fishing villages nestled among the palms. The Maldives today remains a necklace of soft sand atolls laid out on the shimmering azure waters of the Indian Ocean. Maldivian culture is a distinctive blend of the different influences that have shaped the isles over the years – from African drumming to Oriental jewellery-work.
Feel the beat with Bodu Beru
An iconic part of Maldives heritage is the “Bodu Beru”, which literally translates from the local tongue Dhivehi as ‘Big Drums’. Carved from coconut wood, with a goat skin drum head, their beating sound echoes throughout local ceremonies, a sign of celebration and a reminder of the Maldives’ strong East African roots.
