“Music Is A Piece Of Art That Goes In Ears Straight To The Heart.”
Music is just like magic for many. This magic has the power to make your dull mood better and cheerful. The world celebrates World Music Day on the 21st of June every year. This is the day when the world celebrates music at its best. World Music Day started in 1982 in France as 'Fete de la Musique', a music festival. The man behind it was French Minister of Culture Jack Lang.
Music is something that is loved by everyone. World Music Day is celebrated to spread awareness about the soothing nature of music. World Music Day 2021 theme is ‘Music at the Intersection’.
It's very challenging to truly describe music in words. But in the most basic terms, music can be described as an art form and cultural activity, whose medium is sound. Author Victor Hugo wrote that “Music expresses that which cannot be put into words and that which cannot remain silent."
Since India is a land of diversity with varied cultures, every region which has its own unique musical form. Hence, to mark the importance of music, every year World music day is celebrated.
Scientists have found that music stimulates more parts of the brain than any other human function.” Let’s look at some of the ways music can aid in the healing and stimulation of the human brain. When we play any musical instrument, it develops our focus and concentration.
Albert Einstein, who developed an appreciation for music at an early age. In his late journals he wrote: “If I were not a physicist, I would probably be a musician. I often think in music. I live my daydreams in music. I see my life in terms of music... I get most joy in life out of music.”
Music inspired and guided him; it stimulated parts of his brain that could not be accessed through sitting at his desk. Looking at the role of music in Einstein’s thinking sheds some light on how he shaped his most profound scientific ideas. His example suggests that in being intimately involved with the scientific complexity of the music, he was able to bring a unique aesthetic quality to his theories. He confessed to thinking about science in terms of images and intuitions, often drawn directly from his experiences as a musician, only later converting these into logic, words and mathematics.
When we use music in terms of listen songs, it make psychological effects on our brain. Like, it can relax the mind, energize the body, and even help people better manage pain. Another of the science-backed benefits of music is that it just might make you happier.
When we sing songs it strengthens the immune system. Singing can be an excellent form of exercise. Singing exercises your heart, lungs, and releases endorphins, making you feel good.
Music is powerful. It affects our brains, our bodies, and our social connections. And there’s no doubt that many people have relied on music to get through the Coronavirus pandemic.
The pandemic brought most social activities to a screeching halt for over a year. We weren’t allowed to eat in restaurants, exercise in gyms, meet with friends, or visit with extended family. So many of us were left feeling bored. Stay-at-home orders meant many of our “go-to” coping skills were taken away.
In India, the “Sing Karaoke/Star Maker” singing app attracted more million people who sang songs for each other on social media. Many used music to combat loneliness.
Clearly, music has the ability to help us feel better—if we understand our moods and the type of music that can help us regulate our feelings. It was a coping skill that helped many people deal with the emotional turmoil of the pandemic.
Music is divine. It can make you forget all your worries and take you to another world altogether. International Yoga Day is also celebrated on the same day as World Music Day. Practice yoga with a beautiful melody in the background to achieve that tranquillity.
Let us make World Music Day 2021 such a fun day that you should pass with a lot of fun and enjoyment to gear up your mood for the next day’s work. We wish you all enjoy every day with fun and happiness as well as you spend this day.
