Music of the Federated States of Micronesia Go Back
 
The Federated States of Micronesia is a country in the Pacific Ocean, inhabited mostly by people of Micronesian descent, along with a minority of Polynesians. Traditional music varies widely across the four states, and has, in recent times, evolved into popular music influenced by Euro pop, country music and reggae.

Traditional dances on the main islands includes stick dancing on Pohnpei, Chuuk and Yap, standing dances on Chuuk and sitting dances on Yapand Chuuk. The Yapese are particularly known for their skills in dancing. The Yapese stick dance is performed by men, women and children together, while standing dances are performed either by women or men and boys, but never both together. The men participate in various dancing competitions, which are segregated by caste; the lower castes have some distinct dances, such as a woman's standing dance, but can only dance when authorized by a person of a higher caste. Chuuk shares many of the similar dance styles with Yap because of similar cultural heritage with Chuuk and the outer islands of Yap. Chuuk most mysterious and rarest dance is called the Moonlight Dance Its one of the few times which both men and women dance together. It can only happen during a full moon with permission of the village chief. Traditionally speaking, this was a way for young males and females to get together.
