The poet, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow stated one of the most profound unique and original statements, “Music is the universal language of mankind. “ The quote emphasizes, in short, the affect music has on all with its power of sound. Regardless of the culture, language, and ethnicity, all music can “speak” to anyone through various harmonies while also be understood by its own distinct melodies.
Music is the gateway to all communication. Emotions, such as happiness, sadness, fear, anger, and so forth can evoke much meaning through music. Whatever is the native language of any song, it has the ability to voice the meaning through words. It can be influential across the globe without even being translated.
For instance, Jay-Z, the greatest lyricist, rapper, and artist’s music originates in the English language; however his whimsical tunes are loved globally with honor and appreciation. His music and style grabs many listeners attention to commune with his sound, which proves the power of music. This is the same for many other genius artists who create sound. They guide us in knowing the purpose of life through harmony.
Through this powerful communication underlies the thoughts from every living soul through sound. Music has a spectrum beyond just listening for enjoyment. It can harmonize chaos, reveal the truth, bring pain, and much more. It is a worldwide language that exists for everyone. Most of all, it inspires and provokes thinking for the essentials of life.
