Music Feeds Our Souls: Customs Chat - Episode 24

Once a month Melissa and Tracy pull a random topic out of a virtual hat, discuss what global stories come to their minds, and then ask for stories from their listeners. This month's topic is MUSIC.  A melody floats through the air, into our ears, and lands in our souls.  What did music mean to us when we lived in another place? How did it influence us?

We can use music as a tool to remember.  Music is a universal language and can build bridges across cultures, and at the same time music carries culture and meaning specific to place and people. It can teach us culture, language, and even how to find friends.  Music marks celebrations and gathering of people, whether in Karaoke rooms or out in a school play yard.  Music’s beauty feeds our thirsty souls - let’s not go without it.  Thank you to Justin, Iris, Harold, Andy, and Helen for sharing your musical stories with us!
