CultureGrams — New Kids Country: Comoros
The CultureGrams editors are excited to announce a new Kids edition country report!
The new Comoros report includes detailed information on the history, culture, language, food, and daily life of this country.
Here are some interesting Did You Knows about Comoros:
- Comoros is one of the top two producers of vanilla in the world (second to Madagascar).
- The name Comoros came from the Arabic word qamar, meaning “moon”
- Arab slave traders used Comoros as a base for transporting African slaves as early as the 16th century.
- Comoros has one of the largest populations of the coelacanth fish, once called a “living fossil” because it was thought to have become extinct more than 65 million years ago, until it was rediscovered in the 20th century.
Read about local Comorian games and sports, as well as musical instruments and styles, all in this colorful new report.
