8-year-old Zoe on guitar: raw musical talent
Here’s some sheer musical talent to honor. And yes, Zoe Thomson is only 8. Her Stratosphere guitar is likely older than her.
Music is an integral part every culture, throughout history and across continents. We are hard-wired to communicate through music. The study of music in different cultures is called ethnomusicology. Using music in order to better communicate the good news in a cross-cultural mission setting is becoming increasingly understood. Often, culturally-appropriate music can be a key to unlock the message. Check these ethnomusicology resources.
Music strengthens almost any message – that’s why movies have music backgrounds. It’s like a flavor enhancer in cooking.
Words set to music are also memorable, of course. That’s one reason why Christians have always used music in worship, even in OT times. And in oral cultures, memorable lyrics are a way of understanding and remembering Christian teaching.
