Even when the music is decades or hundreds of years old, during an age when our attention span is nil, it always amazes me when I see people stopping in their tracks to listen to their favorite song. What is the attraction? In a world, where youth is sought after, and innovation is gobbled down like popcorn, how does non-contemporary music survive?
Notes and lyrics tell the stories of mankind surviving wars, regimes, famine, diseases, and destruction. Songs are an integral part of what we are, where we come from, and have the power of leading us to where we are going to land next. Music is the perpetual storyteller.
