Latin American culture is the formal or informal expression of the people of Latin America and includes both high culture (literature and high art) and popular culture (music, folk art, and dance) as well as religion and other customary practices.
In long-term perspective, Britain's influence in Latin America was enormous after independence came in the 1820s.
Furthermore, there are about 10 million Quechua speakers in South America and Spain, but more than half of them live in Bolivia and Peru (approximately 6,700,8000 individuals).
Other European languages spoken include Italian in Brazil and Argentina, German in southern Brazil, southern Chile and Argentina, and Welsh in southern Argentina.
This resulted in a mixing of the Amerindians and Europeans and today their descendants are known as mestizos.
Even Latin Americans who are considered "European" usually have some native ancestry.
