What Is Music?

Music is produced by the human body or voice or instruments and can convey emotions and ideas. It has a deep effect on our lives and culture. Some people cannot perform their daily tasks without music.

A fascinating psychological fact about music is that the mood of the song you listen to affects your emotions. Sad songs make you feel down while happy songs lift your spirits. It is because of this that many people prefer to listen to uplifting or motivational music.

The first attempt to explain what music is dates back to the 5th century BC and a philosopher named Pythagoras. He suggested that music governed the harmony of the stars, but modern research suggests that it serves more as social cohesion than anything else.

Rock and roll was developed in the 1950s by artists like Bill Hayley and his Comets and Chuck Berry. This genre has a lot of drums and guitars that create powerful beats. It is very popular among the youths.

Reggae is a rhythmic style of Jamaican music that is influenced by R&B and gospel music. This genre has a slow rhythm that makes it perfect for dancing. You can enjoy listening to Bob Marley’s “No Woman No Cry” or Otis Redding’s “(Sittin’ On) The Dock Of The Bay.”

The genres of music are constantly changing and influencing each other. Some artists are even fusing traditional and contemporary styles to develop new ones. The rise of technology and the internet is also helping to push the boundaries of what music can be. The result is a more eclectic and creative genre.
