Expression of Music is an enriching Identity

Since the creation of time, music has been used as an appearance of cultural identity. Ancient ethnic societies used music as a basis for gathering and to express their past, ethnicity, and artistic beliefs. Music has altered during the ages, but the use of music as a vital part of cultural and individual expression has altered very little.

Music's essential link to identity is often difficult to identify, especially in today's culture where music may not be viewed as individual as message-oriented as it one time. There were times when total generations or cultures of persons each knew the similar songs.

During World War II, complete nations of people sang songs that uttered their national individuality with their cause and their connection to their warfare forces. Again, with the gripe songs of the 1960's and 1970's, the people of the state explored their feelings regarding war, youth, and cultural unrest. And, as music as a shape of expression has grown, dissimilar individuals within the similar society have come to recognize with varying forms of music as their own entity expression of self.
