Art is an essential part of what makes us human beings. The ability to create, for the sake of creation and for the sake sharing that creation with others, is an urge that appears to be, if not unique amongst the creatures on this planet, is at the very least a rare trait indeed.
Our art is is both a reflection of who we are as a people, and in many important ways, it is the sum of who we are as a people.
It is our hopes, our dreams, and our fears. It a snapshot of our history, a reflection of the present, and a glimpse of where we are heading in our future.
Of the many types of art one of the most ubiquitous is music.
