Traveling for Personal Change and Cultural Harmony

As an introduction to this post or blog I must say what I have said time and time again that traveling is the best education, and the best way to gain a true understanding that we the people of the world have more in common that what divide us. The true common denominator is music. No matter where we may travel, music speak to our soul. It does not matter if you are from Accra, Ghana, of Africa and is in Beijing, China, or from Windhoek, Namibia, and in Kerala, India, or from Clarksdale, Mississippi and is in Quito, Peru, or you are in Tokyo, Japan, and is from Rio De Janeiro, Brazil, you are from S. Louis, MO, and is in Haifa, Israel, or from the Mississippi Delta and is in the heart of Zululand of South Africa you will find commonality with music. Once common ground is found then we get about the business of understanding the history and culture of the diverse places that we may find ourselves in and being to enjoy, explore, or immerse our selves the many the diverse things that various cowonders. We untries have to offer, be it food, history, cultural, or the natural will find that the common average person no matter the sociopolitical or socio-economic conditions they are living under, they all or thriving to reach higher ground, and they just need somebody to stand by them, as the following videos will clearly state. No place has given so much to the world music as the Mississippi Delta, which is often considered the birth place of American music. The sounds, rhythm and blues, the raw blues, moans, groans, and songs of lamentations of the Mississippi Delta  is music going or coming full circle. The videos that I have include below  as examples of the world connection through music  have musicians from around the world, such as the Netherlands, Argentina, Italy, Mali, South Africa, France, India, Israel, Brazil, New Orleans and New Mexico of America via the internet playing the same songs together. The selections of songs show that there is an understanding of music have and the impact that some musicians made on the world. The choice of songs will give you cause to stop and think. There is Ben E. King’s “Stand By Me” from 1961, Stevie wonder’s “Higher Ground” from 2002, and Bob Marley’s “3 Little Birds” from 1977 and 1980. Now play the video and be entertained, but more importantly come to understand that music does speak to the soul.

    Music has always been an Universal language bonding people from all over the globe, exploring and expressing the basic human instinct of making music.This is what we now call “Music Together” – song collections and singing together the same songs around the world which we can find in all continents and has a great contribution in the education of people travelling, with no differences in race, religion etc. Thanks for this wonderful blog and the music. Wish you great success as you continue exploring this true common denominater called Music.
