In the world of today, music is a huge part of our lives. It is not only a culture but a way of life. For some, it is an escape from when things get too rough in life and they need a safe space to express their thoughts and feelings, whereas, for others, it is a passion that drives their lives. The power of music is so strong that while bringing everyone together, it also helps everyone find their individuality and uniqueness. Two musicians may be able to create similar genres of music but they will not be able to replicate each other’s color and style.
