Music: The Voice of the Soul

Music: The Voice of the Soul

“Music gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything.”

– Plato

Music is a language of emotions that can represent different feelings, and barge into the soul with no boundaries. It’s that one true friend who’s always by your side: to celebrate with you, to comfort you, to calm you, to embrace you and most importantly, never leave you. Undoubtedly, it possesses the power of healing that almost none can compete with, for when words fail and actions come to nothing, music speaks. It is thus a simple and honest fact that music in any form is one of the best medicines one can have.

Music has its ambiguity, so what music means to one may or may not be the exact reason for another. To me, music is my world; I love escaping into this wonderful dreamland as often as possible. The minute I hit ‘PLAY’, an unaccountable sensation takes over my system; the euphonious sound tingles my eardrums and my skin with a gratifying feeling. As a dancer, music is my wellspring of joy, happiness and love, and I cannot do without it. Something I believe that most of my fellow dancers can relate to is that when it is the right rhythm, accompanied with the right beats and vibes, you don’t require lyrics to base your dance on; you just feel the music, shut the world away, and indulge in the song. In short, music is my true love.

The kind of music I listen to…well, anything danceable. Like aforementioned, if the vibe and feel is perfect, I just dive right into it and enjoy myself to the core. But yes, there are certain genres I have a special liking towards, the first on the list being K-Pop. K-Pop or Korean Pop Music must be a familiar term to everyone right now, if not a favorite. I was introduced to this genre a little more than three years ago, and oh, there has been no turning back ever since! The vibrant beats and synchronized dances fused to produce the quintessence of breath-taking performances are what I enjoy through and through. This is, however, only a part of it; there are slow-paced tracks with calmer music and soothing beats as well.

I listen to a variety of songs of various groups, my favorite artists being BTS, TXT, NCT, STRAY KIDS, SEVENTEEN, ITZY and more. Their songs have deep emotions embedded in them, which enable me to empathize with them and fellow fans. Moreover, their passion for doing what they love inspires me. Becoming a K-pop stan is by far one of the nicest choices I’ve made, and I’m glad to have this addition in my joy-packed life.

On this 21st of June, I would like to wish each and every one of you, especially the hard-core music lovers, a very Happy International Music Day. May your lives be filled with love, happiness, and of course, music forevermore. I wish to conclude my writing with a quote by the famous Billy Joel:

“I think music in itself is healing. It’s an explosive expression of humanity. It’s something we are all touched by. No matter what culture we’re from, everyone loves music.”
