Though I’ve never been able to travel the world (or venture very far from Boston), I have the amazing opportunity to explore the world through music. Music is a bridge between the people of many cultures, allowing performers to speak messages to listeners on a local and international level. Universal desires, such as to love, to have friendship, and to get it down on da dance floor, transcend the language barrier. With around two weeks until my study abroad application is due, I recently revisited my international music library and rediscovered my love for music from around the world.
Now, allow me to take you around the world in less than 80 minutes with these songs.
