There is a fine probability in this globalized economy that a person beside you does not understand your language but both of you understand the language of music. Countries have fought war but came together to listen to the same old music. Musicians and artists are never differentiated because they all speak the same language which is the language of music. Imagine a person playing a guitar inside an underground railway station and you drop few cents to support him. You never knew him yet the guitar he/she is playing is enough for you to get connected with him.
Like all things in the world music never remained constant it changed from one generation to other. Your father might have listened to a different kind of music than you and your child might have heard a different kind of music than what you are hearing now. Music is evolving day by day and some millions of tunes have been created and still new tunes are being created by amateurs and professionals by day.
