Museu da Tabanca
The Museu da Tabanca is a museum dedicated to local culture, particularly tabanka music, in Cape Verde. It's located in the town of Chã de Tanque in the western part of the island of Santiago.
The museum was first established in 1999 and officially opened in February 2000 by the Prime Minister of Cape Verde, Carlos Veiga. The creation of the museum was a result of effective collaboration between government cultural entities, local authorities, and the civil society of the municipality. It was aimed at creating a space to promote and enhance cultural life in the municipality of Santa Catarina, as well as the larger region of Santiago.
The Museu da Tabanca is housed in the restored building of the former Post and Finance Bureau, a site considered to be of cultural and historical significance. It's situated in the center of Assomada city. The museum's mission is to dignify and ensure quality in the cultural activities that take place within it, both for performers and audiences.
In December 2008, the museum was moved to its current location in Chã de Tanque, which is also part of Santa Catarina. Following two years of renovations, it was reopened in November 2017. Today, the Museu da Tabanca continues to serve as a vital institution for the preservation, promotion, and celebration of the local culture of Cape Verde.
