Exploring diverse cultures through music.
"There's music in the sighing of a reed;
There's music in the gushing of a rill;
There's music in all things, if men had ears:
Their earth is but an echo of the spheres."

    I need to find the videos I did at the International Folk Music festival and post here Chas. The diversity of the music both surprised and thrilled me.

    Thanks for the tag @Chas Wyatt. Very happy to join the hive. Love the Byron quote and already appreciate your first selection and the discussion that has evolved. This excerpt from a Kirkus Review describes why I think THE WORLD IN SIX SONGS by Daniel Levitin is a must read: “Music played a key role in making societies and civilizations possible. So argues research scientist Levitin (Laboratory for Musical Perception, Cognition, and Expertise/McGill University; This Is Your Brain on Music, 2006, etc.), who believes that music and the human brain co-evolved. What distinguishes us from all other species, he declares, is not language or use of tools, but the impulse toward artistic expression. The auditory art of music became part of our brain's wiring tens of thousands of years ago, and human nature has been shaped by six broad categories of songs, by which Levitin means music of all kinds. Devoting a chapter to each category-friendship, joy, comfort, knowledge, religion and love-the author speculates about its origins and how it influenced the human spirit over thousands of generations. Levitin sees songs as efficient systems for preserving tribal histories, transmitting essential how-to information from generation to generation and communicating spiritual feelings and deep emotions.”

    I think this is a great idea, @Chas Wyatt. I have to admit that I get stuck listening to the same stuff repeatedly, so very eager to follow along on a journey to many musical cultures.

    This first piece is magnificent.

    Thank you for tagging me @Chas Wyatt. I noted and joined your new hive. Music creates and shapes culture and vice versa. Music is like a form of identification. It says a lot about who we are. Thank you for the lovely slideshow share.

    One of the peculiarities about residing in an age with an abundance of media is that we do not usually listen to music that someone has not given some context or meaning to. We are more readily to listen to Salif Keita because it visually captured a scene in the movie about Mohammad Ali in "When We Were Kings" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n7Rulsk1tWk and still not know who Salif Kaita was or is. With or without context the appreciation I have for music is commensurate to the talent that produced it and in this case the context is enhanced with a nicely crafted slideshow of africa and it's people.
