The world folk music gained a lot of popularity across the globe in the recent years, with a wide range of styles and music forms. However, no music style matches the popularity and uniqueness of the Celtic music.
Art has undoubtedly become a decisive aspect of our culture; embedded in the way we learn and grow on a daily basis. Art forms such as music, television and dance dominate our society as an outlet of freedom of speech for humanity. The evolution of music has rapidly exceeded its original classifications, developing new genres with greater appeal to an audience, hence its influence on society has expedited. In recent times, lyrics (specifically rap lyrics) have been introduced into the court room as a form of documented confessional evidence, evidently challenging law’s authoritative nature. This essay will closely follow the genre of rap and its relationship with law, through cases based in the United States of America (USA). In addition, the trial of Simon Bikindi in Rwanda and Smith v The Queen will be used to form an acute analysis on the influencing factors of relevance, identity, freedom of speech and current constitutional law.
In the late 2004, a series of papers (research project) on the topic of world music and globalisation became a hot topic in a conference and gradually took on a life turning onto a virtual laboratory for teaching and research on the relationship between music and globalisation under ethnography which was funded by the Canadian Social Sciences and humanities Research Council from 2003-2006. Since then this topic has got wide meaning and more complicated.
American Indian music has, throughout the history of the native people, been a major part in the life of a tribe’s cultural expression. The Southern Plains American Indians have learned, from their ancestors/elders, the delicate rhythmic communication as youth, and have carried the expression throughout their lives. The songs of the Southern Plains American Indians represent their artistic language as a diminishing minority group. Through song, American Indians communicate their beliefs and values as a distinct society. American Indians use equipment such as drums, vocals, and dance during the performance of their, often, monophonic language with a rare heterophony texture.
They are repetitive and can be easily sung along. Native Americans songs and performance are always filled with vocables especially in social dances such as Tea dance in the sub arctic. This phenomenon is also common in Ugandan tribes especially hunting songs and community events where people may not have time to learn lyrics to a new song such as Ekitaguriro dances. The lead is the only who sings in text and the backup always sings repeated phrases such ‘a ah aha ah ye’. In other events that are not social dances, text can be heard and understood if one understands the language. The form of the songs in all regions seems to focus an introduction of the song that is always slow tempo and then the dynamics change towards climax and dancing, if any,
In a time where the world was recovering after its second world war, a great quantity of interesting events were taking place. The nineteen fifties was a flourishing time for our economy, since the U.S. was a world power. Accordingly, there was room for innovation in science, especially in the medical field. Also, mass leisure was common amongst the world, especially in the United States. This made music become a major influence in teenagers. Prior to the end of World War 2 in the previous decade, there was a lot going on in politics, and it was a very active time for the government, especially in a war such as the Cold War. This led to many movements, such as the Feminist and Civil Rights movements. Harry Truman was also the president that
Ludwig Van Beethoven is one of the most famous composers of all time. Some people consider him the greatest composer of all time. Beethoven was the predominant musical figure in the transitional period between the Classical and Romantic eras. He was very talented in music. He was a great composer and made music for himself to play in his early years. Not everything was perfect in Beethoven's life. He started to become deaf and could hardly hear when he was older.
One day he was preparing to leave on a tour of England, when his doctor told him to go to the hospital. He died the next day, the fourth of September, 1907, in Bergen, the town of his birth. His last words were to his beloved Nina, “well, if it must be so.” His ashes were scattered in a grotto in Troldhaugen, overlooking the wild fjords of the land he loved (Kildahl; Malherbe).

Edvard Grieg was born in Bergen, Norway on 15 June 1843. Grieg was raised in a musical home. His mother, who became his first piano teacher, taught him to play from the age of 6. As a teenager, Grieg enrolled in the conservatory in Leipzig, Germany, concentrating on the piano. He also enjoyed the numerous concerts and recitals given in Leipzig. However, Grieg disliked the discipline of the conservatory course of study. Nonetheless, he still achieved very good grades in most areas, an exception being the organ, which was mandatory for piano students. In the spring of 1860, Grieg survived a life-threatening lung disease.
The major war of World WarⅡhad a bigger impact on the music that surrounds us more than most realize. The war caused many gradual changes such as, the change into musical groups instead of Big Bands, musician royalty payment, and the limit to materials used in musical instruments. Between 1941 and 1951 bands have became smaller because of expenses and obstacles from the war. During the musicians protest there was the want for royalty payment for albums and artists. Lastly, the war caused a limit in the materials used to make musical instruments.
Music plays a significant rule in our lives. It’s a melody and rhythm we live in. It plays a very essential rule in our day to day to life when it comes to expressing feelings, passing time and for other uses as well. Though we in general may not think about how music has changed so much in the past few decades we must acknowledge the fact todays music is the outcome of the various change in the past. Today’s majority of music we hear is what we define as more as a “westernized” music. Considering other cultures in the world, a huge impact of western music is seen within them. Westernization and modernization are two different words with different meanings and they have two different impacts on a society. Modernization is used to define the improvements and show a progressive transition from one stage to another. Westernization is the concept of being influenced by the customs and techniques of the western society and reflecting them in a non-western culture. This essay will discuss furtherly about the impact of the western society on music cultures of North India and Korea by looking from both the positive and negative point of this impact.
Music from all over the world presents a range of musical theories. Some of these are documented in writing whilst others are transmitted orally. Discuss and give examples with reference to both Western and non-Western music.
