Eritrean dance culture surrounds quite a lot around traditional Tigrinya dances, with a lot of rhythmical moves and dynamic steps. It is also common for both men and women to be a part of the festive dances.
As for the music scene, Asmara is usually seen as the region that sets the standard for Tigrinya music. During recent years, there has been a piano bar phenomenon sweeping across the capital city with venues being packed with fans. The piano bars could be seen as an avant garde form of jazz and blues as the artists remixes a range of classic hits rather than performing their own songs.
