Some people say that music is a good way of bringing people of different cultures and ages together. To what extent do you agree or disagree with this opinion.

Singing has always been a key distinguisher of culture, but many believe that it can
also
bridge cultural gaps and differences in age. Though I think some people overstate the impact of tune levelling the differences between generations, I strongly believe that it brings people of different cultures together by expressing universal sentiments. There are some types of
music
that tear us apart, let alone bring people closer together. People at different

For instance
, in the modern era, youngsters usually are interested in some particular types of singing
such
as pop, hip-hop, rap, or rock as well as the celebrities
such
as Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran or Justin Bieber.
Otherwise
, the older generations share their interest in any kinds of song like country, classic, bolero as well as some idols
such
as the Beatles, Celine Dion, Michael Jackson.
Moreover

or sexual discriminations can create cultural, ethnic and political conflicts.
In contrast
,
although
music
Suggestion
the music
does little to alleviate generational barriers, it does help cultures relate through universal, human perspectives. What I mean by
this
is that even though people may not understand another culture they can still understand the messages of the
music
. One great example of
this
is the
music
of Bob Marley. Bob Marley is from a small Caribbean country called Jamaica, a country whose culture has become influential around the world.
This
is because he expressed universal feelings of love, empathy, and positivity against the backdrop of a nation experiencing political and economic upheaval. His resilience against
this
pulses through his infectious
music
and has translated across cultural divides. An Asian person, who might not have any
firsthand
Suggestion
first hand
experience with different races or cultures, can still identify with Bob Marley and enjoy his
music
.
This
connection based entirely on
music
brings together people of disparate cultures through an emotional and intellectual bonding on common issues. In conclusion, even though it seems clear that there is a huge gap between age groups and people will not fully understand other cultures, it is indisputable that singing can send to people some meaningful messages in life. I am of the opinion that singing can unify every civilization or every Freemasonry with each other. We should preserve our traditional musical cultures so that we can share them to international people in the world.
