I also get a kick out of the difference in the concepts of music in other cultures. In Ghana, music is inseparable from movement and dance, and in some southeast asian cultures it is explicitly something for worship and in some cases all music becomes a form of worship. It is interesting the roles music takes in the various lives on this planet- how you can go to a concert hall and see all these people sitting completely still in the middle of something as powerfully evocative as Verdi's Requiem (when it is all i can do not to move) and then look at an entire group of people wildly dancing to a repetitive rhythm on a single jembe. Or to see Tuvan throat singers using the music as a game or as a way to communicate across distances. I am enraptured by the things people do with sound!!
