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.
While Some people say that music is a good way of bringing people of different cultures and ages together, I totally do not agree with the opinion. One of the reasons why I disagree with the opinion is that there is no direct correlation between enjoying music and bring people together. Bring people together can be possible only if people understand each other and share many things such as languages and religion. Thus, no matter how many people enjoy music together, music cannot bring people together unless this prerequisite such as understanding each other is fulfilled. For example, even though many famous songs from the US have been popular in other countries, people in other countries still have different thoughts and beliefs, and many conflicts between the US and other countries are ongoing. Another reason is due to the high barrier of culture. Above all, culture includes diverse meanings from customs to languages, and people have various cultures, which is affected by mainly their nationality and religion. The difference made by these diverse cultures has caused a lot of controversy or war among many countries. However, there have been few cases that music prevented these conflicts. This shows that music could not reduce conflicts caused by different cultures. Furthermore, the generation gap is caused by several reasons such as the level of education, and the gap between generations makes people have different music genres. In this case, music cannot bring people together at all. For these reasons above, I believe that music is not a good way to make people together.
