MUSIC: A bridge for cultures

This text-audio piece is part of our report. Those who were is Istanbul, could listen to it in the conference.Now, you can download it:

“Music. It is basically one of the most popular ways of communication. Far away from your senses’ simple desire to enjoy, it was made to express, tell, and even to represent a society.

Depending on the place, it serves different goals. In colonial times in Africa, it was considered a dangerous tool against European power. In this place, music was definitely (and it is actually) related to dance. Slaves used it to express themselves, but dancing, jumping and singing were usually forbidden: soldiers were afraid of them, they thought slaves were training to rebel.

Nevertheless, music can let us know what we are made of, what we think, how we feel…

Sometimes ­­(we can say “always”) it is the only way to communicate, when words aren’t enough, high walls stop our steps and we cannot understand what we considered “strange and disturbing habits”.

From East to West, from West to East, of Europe, music is able to overcome time and space looking for someone to listen to it. And he or she always appears. Do you know where these melodies come from?”
