Is Music Really A Universal Language? Maybe…Not

Music: The universal language. It’s the one thing that connects all of humanity, transcending cultural boundaries and uniting us all in our appreciation for the art of sound. No matter where you come from, a good song can lift your spirits or bring you to tears. Music lets us express our emotions when we don’t have the words to speak them, building off the fundamental mathematics of the universe in order to tell stories to people we couldn’t otherwise communicate with. Right? Well, um… No. Not really. But that’s a good thing!
