A Pop Of Culture In The Amazing World Of Music

Music is sound that is pleasing to the ear. That is the general description that is used worldwide to explain what music is. Although the pleasantries of these sounds may differ from person to person, music has the ability to bring people together from all walks of life. Regardless of your status in the society, or your race or even your body type, music t can still bring a united front and break down all the barriers set up by human descriptions.

Music has evolved with the passing of time, and some, if not all, genres of music hold certain historical values or certain significance to its listeners. Jazz music, for instance is related to a time in history where ‘the black’ were being colonized. It is a type of instrumental music believed to have been started by the African American people in the olden times. While many other genres of music have evolved to great extents, jazz music still seems to hold certain significance to its listeners. Its ability to retain its rich value is what keeps its funs interested and therefore constant.

Another genre of music that has quite an effect on people is rock music. The history of this genre is often related to a musician known as Elvis. While rock music is not as old as jazz is, it has evolved since its debut. At this current time, rock music has been sub divided into several other genres of rock. This includes, and is certainly not limited to, soft rock, hard rock (also known as metal rock), alternative rock, and gothic rock.

A brief description of the above mentioned categories, will help us understand what each category entails. Soft rock, for instance involves a certain type of music that is often slow in pace and a bit soothing to the ears. It differs from metallic rock, in that; it often brings a peaceful mood to the listener. Hard rock, on the other hand, is a type of music that involves a lot of shouting and hitting of instruments in a fast and often vigorous manner. This type of rock hardly brings calm, but rather, it helps free the listeners mind and body from any stress or tension they may have. This music often involves a lot of curse words.

Dance music is also another type of music that has evolved with time. At first, it was completely nonexistent. But since the development of certain equipment, dance music was created. This type of music involves sounds that have been created through the use of computerized systems. This means that they are not played from natural man made equipment, but rather, from computers and other equipment. Dance music is often associated with clubs and disco lights as this is the place whereby it is most played.

Pop music. This is our next area of concentration, and the area that has drawn most of the attention of the youth of today. Pop music was derived from the term ‘popular music’. It is one of the most recent genres of music which is not really limited to a specific history or style, but rather, to the mere fact that it has a popular tune. It is a type of music that is constantly evolving. Most listeners are drawn to the sound of these songs but the unfortunate thing is that it is not timeless. Pop musicians have the challenge of constantly trying to create pop music that is pleasing to the ears, while still being somewhat timeless.

Another type of music that requires our concentration is country music. Now this genre of music is not really historical per say, but is largely associated with a certain ‘type’ of people. The singers and listeners of this type of music are from certain parts of the world that are not very urban. They prefer to live the ‘farm life’ the ‘country life’ as most people call it. This music is associated with farmers and ranch owners. However, the pop of culture has evolved this type of music, therefore making it pleasing to many, even those who do not consider farming as their way of life.

The country music that is being sung and performed today is not the same as the older country music. Today’s’ country music has a great influence from pop music, which has given rise to a certain fast paced genre of country music which is sometimes termed as pop country music.
