Have you ever heard a song that transports you back to a wonderfully specific moment in time that you just treasure?  Those moments make your heart sing and maybe even your voice!  The month of July at Family Connections Experiment is dedicated to connecting with your homeland and what better way to do that than by learning more and listening to the music of those places.

There are so many different kinds of music because there are so many different types of people.  

Here is a sampling according to their regional origins.  Start your exploration here: 

African Music

 

Asian Music

Caribbean Music

European Music

Latin Music

North American

Listen to traditional music from your homeland. You can also look up some popular songs in the language of your homeland, find the translation of the words, or watch a YouTube performance.  Remembering your culture when you hear the music created there can provide you with a deep, connective experience that you can enjoy for years to come.
