MUSIC THERAPY


Check out Erakah's experience with expressing emotions and

 

channeling anger through music. Hip-Hop culture is born out

 

of the concurrent and convergent evolution of the arts of

 

graffiti, break dancing, Dj-ing and emceeing – creative forms

 

of self-expression. Music is another form of communication.

 

Rap and Hip-Hop is a universal language for the African

 

Diaspora to express the oppression and abuse they suffered

 

from in America. Macklemore discusses Hip Hop, Cultural

 

Appropriation “I'm just saying it's important to listen and to

 

be humble… this is not my culture to begin with. This is not a

 

culture that white people started. So I do believe, as much as

 

I have honed my craft, as much as I have put in years of

 

dedication into the music that I love, I do believe that I need

 

to know my place, and that comes from me listening." –
 

"I saw a Tweet, it was something along the lines of 'Hip-Hop

 

was birthed out of the Civil Rights Movement.' This is a

 

culture that came from pain, it came from oppression, it came

 

from white oppression… you cannot disregard where this

 

culture came from and our place in it as white people." - Macklemore
 

Music Therapy is a great tool to release stress, emotions, and

 

unblock creativity. You can listen to F*ck my Boss here! to

 

inspire you to express yourself through music and defuse built up

 

anger which can be dangerous if released in unsafe environment.

 

Music Therapy can also be used for "cognitive functioning, motor

 

skills, emotional development, communication, sensory, social skills,

 

and quality of life by using both active and receptive music

 

experiences such as improvisation, re-creation and composition.

 

Listening to different frequencies can also offer healing from DNA

 

Trauma, for example 528hz can be used removed subconscious blockage.
