Music Definitions and Facts About Genres and Festivals
While listening to music, you are constantly guided by the underlying musical texture. You’ve heard commercials accompanied by catchy music that catches the attention of listeners. You’ve seen music being played in stores and sports stadiums to keep the crowd happy. Music is the universal language and has a way of changing your mood in an instant. Here are some definitions to help you choose the right music for your mood. But before you decide on a song, know a bit about how music works and what it can do for you.
Throughout history, music has changed dramatically. Before, musicians resorted to plastering telephone poles with posters and selling cassette tapes from the trunk of their car. Today, they have more options than ever before, allowing them to direct their audience and create a brand for themselves. While fan clubs used to be small and intimate, social media networks are increasingly important to artists, allowing them to broadcast their message, post personal photos and engage in political discussions.
In the 1970s, glam rock was born, and David Bowie helped to popularize the genre. After that, disco took over the decade, with the likes of the Bee Gees and Gloria Gaynor becoming huge stars. Rap music took the world by storm, and Bob Marley’s enigmatic voice put reggae on the map. Later, in the decade, the emergence of funk and x-rated music brought back the Grateful Dead, the pioneers of 60s psychedelic music. Although the late singer and guitarist Jerry Garcia died in 1995, his music continues to live on, and the group has continued to tour under several alternative names.
