The Aztec People and Culture:

The South Central region of present-day Mexico was once the home of the Aztec. They lived in the highlands of Mesoamerica in an area of basins separated by eroded volcanic peaks and dissected mountain ranges. Today, many indigenous groups of Latin America can trace their roots back to the Aztec.

Music and dance were a significant part of Aztec life. The most common instruments were rattles, whistles, trumpets, flutes, copper bells, and shells. Everyone took part in dances performed especially for the gods, including peasants.
