Music is an important part in our life. It is necessary for three reasons: cultural identity, entertainment, and connections among countries. Firstly, music is believed to be a representation of our culture. Different countries have different genres of music. Based on the rhythms, one can say from where a song comes. Secondly, it plays an essential role in entertainment. For example, every party or ceremony needs music. When we feel stressful, we also listen to music. Finally, it is a connection among countries. As can be seen, for a good song such as “My heart will go on”, people can probably find it all over the world. Moreover, in many universities such as Macquarie University, we can easily find many ceremonies in which students from different countries gather together and play their traditional music so that students can understand more about other cultures and make friends during their university life.
From my personal perspective, the traditional and international music are of the same importance. As mentioned earlier, music is important because it is relaxing. Therefore, people can enjoy whatever kinds of music they feel interested in. Let’s assume that one kind of music is deemed as more important than the other. If people cannot enjoy it, it is just of no use. Besides that, different people have different tastes so we can find that some people will love traditional music whereas others are more interested in international music. Next, we need to maintain traditional music since it is part of our culture. If for whatever reasons we lose traditional music, all the songs around the world will be probably very similar to each other. At that time, everybody could feel indifferent to music because of its homogeneousness.
