Merri and I are just back from conducting our Super Thinking + Spanish course. Here is the class studying at the Cotacachi Museum next to Meson de las Flores.
We had some surprises while there, like the Corn Queen parade. Here is the queen passing by our class room.
Yet the course went really well… in more way than most delegates had expected.
As one delegate put it… “This course has saved my life.”
In a moment we’ll share an amazing exhibition of what the human mind can do. First let’s discuss a secret for unlocking your genius within, for improved health, wealth and joy.
Each of us has some form of genius and music helps unlock our own unique, amazing energy. This is a universal fact!
An excerpt from a Science Daily article “Language Of Music Really Is Universal, Study Finds” says: Native African people who have never even listened to the radio before can nonetheless pick up on happy, sad, and fearful emotions in Western music, according to a new report published online on March 19th in Current Biology. The result shows that the expression of those three basic emotions in music can be universally recognized, the researchers said.
“These findings could explain why Western music has been so successful in global music distribution, even in music cultures that do not as strongly emphasize the role of emotional expression in their music,” said Thomas Fritz of the Max-Planck-Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences.
The expression of emotions is a basic feature of Western music, and the capacity of music to convey emotional expressions is often regarded as a prerequisite to its appreciation in Western cultures, the researchers explained. In other musical traditions, however, music is often appreciated for other qualities, such as group coordination in rituals.
In the new study, Fritz, Stefan Koelsch, and their colleagues wanted to find out whether the emotional aspects of Western music could be appreciated by people who had no prior exposure to it. Previous studies had asked similar questions about people with little experience with a particular musical form, for instance Westerners listening to Hindustani music, they said. But to really get at musical universals requires participants who are completely naïve to Western music.
Fritz enlisted members of the Mafa, one of about 250 ethnic groups in Cameroon. He traveled to the extreme north of the Mandara mountain ranges, where they live, with a laptop and sun collector to supply electricity in his backpack.
Their studies showed that both Western and Mafa listeners, who had never before heard Western music, could recognize emotional expressions of happiness, sadness, and fear in the music more often than would be expected by chance. However, they report that the Mafa showed considerable variability in their performance, with two of twenty-one study participants performing at chance level.
