Language is not a Barrier in Music: stop giving justifications.

There are probably about 65000 languages in the world including Akan Twi, Ewe and Dangme which is spoken by Krobos.

Music is like a new language. This is because you can transmit what you perceive or what you desire. it’s difficult to communicate with other people when they don’t speak or understand your language, you may be afraid of making a grammatical mistake, or saying something that may be so favourite or so direct for the person that you’re discussing with.

With music this is easier, you can connect with people or persons from another country, and this will be as an opportunity to make new buddies that share your favourite music. Language shouldn’t be a barrier for us to communicate or to express the fire we feel.

The world in which we leave will not have meaning if not for languages. Despite speaking many different languages, people have managed to communicate effectively and efficiently and to transact businesses.

The basics of a language are understanding and expression.
Even though words are spoken or voiced out for understanding, the mood of expression also has great significance in communication.

Music speaks; it’s a carrier of both words and expression. The expression of voices, the number of musicians or artiste and the elements of music in a song brings meaning to the song.

Music breaks language boundaries. People do not only listen to the lyrics/words in a song. They pay attention to the instrumental and tone the music carry.
In an interview with BTS, he said plainly that language is not a barrier should not be treated as one. “We also listen to songs of various languages we don’t understand”
(“No Language Barrier In Music,” Say K-Pop Sensation BTS” ).
