Music evolution!

Before I start writing about music, I would like to share with you this quote:”Music can evolve by the process of natural selection, the same way species evolve in the natural world.”

I think, we do not need to have Mozart or Verdi talent in order to write or compose music.; because it helps us to express our feelings and emotions. Some people use it as part of their therapies!

Natural selection refers to Darwin’s idea that within a population there is always variation. Some variants are undesirable and go extinct, while others do exceptionally well and thrive. Scientists have tried to apply this method to human culture, claiming that words, songs, images and ideas undergo a similar process — for example these cultural artefacts mutate, some die out and others catch on and become great hits.

It’s also important to preserve our musical tradition, our instruments like charanago, quena among others. Dancing also plays an important role in music evolution. New generations make new mixes using new beats and instruments.
