What is Culture? Cristina De Rossi, an anthropologist at Barnet and Southgate College in London, explained that the word "culture" derives from a French term, which in turn derives from the Latin "colere," which means to tend to the earth and grow, or cultivation and nurture. It shares its etymology with a number of other words related to actively fostering growth. It was with this energy of nurturing the creative forces that exist on this earth through music, dance and wellness that Cultura Collection was born.

Throughout my continuous travels around the world, I realize that these experiences are priceless. Trevor Noah said it best when he defined travel as the antidote to ignorance, especially going to places where they don’t speak your language. Although customs, traditions, and religions differ, you will always find a language that does not need translated through experiencing the arts that bring us together.

Travel and exploring is also the way to a happier and healthier lifestyle. It relieves stress, enhances creativity and gives us the opportunity to broaden our social and cultural outlook. There are so many beautiful experiences that I plan to share on this platform. Stay tuned!
