World Music

Music is the universal language of mankind.

~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

If the above quote is true, then there are many different dialects spoken around the world.  Music is a unique part of culture.  (Think 6th grade Social Studies, 5 Themes of Geography-->Human Features)

In this project, you will explore music from countries around the world.  As part of your research, you'll need to gather additional information on the country.  Use the resources along the sides of this LibGuide to help you in your research.
