Music bringing cultures together.

This is my first blog and its on music and how it has affected cultures and the psychology assfects of it. The article stated that a test was given to 40 people of the Mbenzele Pygmies who were musicains. They listened to their own and new Western music. The researchers also gave the test to 40 musicians in Montreal. Both had to rate how the music made them feel using emotions such as happy, sad, or excited faces. There was a large difference between the groups.

I for one believe in many ways that music can change a persons mood, and or can change that person entirely. Also it can bring cultures together as well as bring people together during terribly times like when the twin towers fell and other bombings.
