Asian Culture has been such an interesting topic to talk about when it comes to its origin, language and most of all the countries that surround it. There is many aspects as to why Asian culture has slowly been westernizing and losing their roots. So things that make Asian Culture very interesting is music which makes it so cool. I listen to all types of music and I listen to music such as J-rock from Japan, some Sangeet from India, some Korean music, Chinese pop from China and others like music from Taiwan. I love music and I think that this aspect of Asian Culture is awesome, but westernization is slowly changing their original culture. Music has been transitioning from oldies to modern music such as today's modern music. I want to get more into the culture and compare traditional music from its modern music that is listened by people of that country. Although I do think that music can never be changed because music is always changing and that's just what it does all the time in every single culture that there has ever been. I love music and I think that music can never change itself only get influenced by other types of music. Which is awesome because we see diffusing elements amongst cultures.
Chinese music is a very interesting type of music that I like to listen to. A very famous Chinese artist is Leehom Wang who is 32 years old and does various genres such as J-pop, Mandopop, R&B, hip-hop and rock. Leehom is a New Yorker who was born in Rochester. I found an article about him on the following link: http://chinesemusicblog.com/reviews/leehom-wang-heart-beat. In the link I found a quote that said " Even if the album doesn’t win you over, his sincerity will." I think that this quote expresses that it doesn't matter how the album sound toy uo what matter is the dedication he put in just for you or the audience.
Japnese music is another type of music that I like to listen to specially visual kei which is a genre among the japanese people which I think is very interesting. One band that I love to listen to because of their unique sound and looks is Aicle wwho I love sooo much. Okay so this is what I found for one of their blogs: http://visualscandal.blogspot.com/2008/12/live-dist-aicle-choco-sand-bis.... A quote I found was: "live d Aicle., es una nueva version, esta bueno y eso q no me gusta muxo esta banda
e n j o y ! First of all the translation is " This is Aicle's live album and it's a new version, it's really good for the fact that I really don't like the, enjoy!!!".....so I think what they are trying to say is that although they don't like Aicle as much, they have amazed them with this live. The funny thing is I love Aicle reguardless becuase they are such a good band which makes me happy all the time I listen to them....
This is a picture of Leehom Wang. I think that using media such as pictures make my question look in a different way because you can look at the fashion and its origins and the background to see where the picture was taken at, etc. There are endless way to look at this picture in a different view and that's why media can be so important to my question.
