Muzika Etnika

exhibition in Czech Museum of Music

Location: Czech Museum of Music, Karmelitská 2/4, Praha 1

No human society exists without music. The Bach oratorio, however, sounds very different from the songs of North American Indians, and these are not in the least similar to the music in Chinese tea houses. Why is that? By presenting groups of instruments from seven cultural regions on four continents we would like to show that music is formed by the same set of rules as an entire mother culture. Each of these groups presents a kind of window through which we can look into a culture and take note of some of its distinctive characteristics reflected in its music. We are convinced that within the shape of music is reflected its mother culture, and if we understand the values of a culture we also understand its music much better.
