Music is a special art which is made up of various rthymes and tunes arranged in a way that is pleasant or exciting to listen to. It gives us strength and pleasure, and relieves our stress and sadness. So for everyone, music is an essential thing to live happily throughout their lives. There are manny different types of music in the world today. Each one is useful and necessary from various points of view. Among them, in my opinion, the traditional music of a country is more important than the international music that is heard everywhere nowadays.
Traditional music is necessary for a country and the people who live in
It's also a part which reflects the culture of a country. Therefore, as far s I am concerned, it's important for a country to have its traditional music and maintain it carefully. It can also be divided into different types such as pop, rock, jazz, country and so on. In some govermental ceremonies, huge drums called " Sidawgyi " are used to show how much Myanmar traditional music is good to listen to and that it can be maintained till nowadays from the earlier centuries such as the age of Anawrahtra and Bayin-Naung. For instance, rock was very popular in the internationalmusic flow five years ago. However, at the moment, hip-hop's already taken the place of rock successfully. For example, in our country, Myanmar, our traditional music is important and essential for our traditional festivals and ceremonies such as weddings, notable govermental ceremonies, novitiation ceremonies, etc. It's the duty of everybody to maintain their own traditional music. Unlike the international music, the traditional music has to be maintained. Although international music is wide-spread among people and become popular for its themes, rhythms and tunes, it's not stable and it always gets changing. Myanmar " Hsai-Waing ", drum beats, Myanmar harp sound, sounds of " Oh-zi Dobat " and traditional songs, which are created using these instruments and sounds, are popular among Myanmars. And every country has their own traditional music which is one of the differences among countries. And it's not sure which type of music would be the most famous in the international music flow in next five years.
