Genre Detail

    Community music emerged as the basis of the community art movement during the political and cultural changes of the late '60s and early '70s. The growth of community music reflects this period of transition, appearing as a socio force -policy in professional musical practice. The community genre began in postwar Britain. World War II destroyed working communities for a long time, causing a new trend in mobile employment, as people moved from ruined cities to new cities. These movements created new communities, and the comfort of "knowing your neighbor" was no longer a fact. To try to overcome the problems caused by this mobility, at the end of the 1940s, a new profession of community agents appeared. Those working in this broad area of community education recognize the lack of cultural activities and therefore add a cultural element to their practical goals. The beneficiaries of these new elements began to apply for artistic activities so that these demands increased during the 1950s and early 1960s. These developments foreshadowed the artistic movement of the community in the late 1960s and, therefore, a large part of community music.

    Considered a "movement," the arts of the community rested on the recognition of similarities in the aims and methods of the activity of their founders.

    Here are four identified general types of community music:

    Amateur Music 

    Includes orchestras, groups, and community choirs. It offers participants an experience similar to that of a professional team, with scores and tracks, led by experienced pilots and generally with auditions. The music is sung often comes from the Western canon.

    Communal Music 

    May involve community groups that play music from different cultures and traditions, community choirs, ukulele groups, and improvised sessions. It is driven by participation, open access, shared connections, eclectic repertoire, relaxed opinions on musicality and models.

    Music from a community 

    It can be music from a specific ethnic community or a community of interest and is part of the expression of the identity of these people. It can only be open to members of this community, and group knowledge can be within the community.

    Musical Interventions

    These are activities that meet the needs of the community through music, promoting cultural engagement. The objectives can be to increase civic pride, community well-being, or social cohesion. They can offer learning and participation opportunities to marginalized groups, to resolve disadvantages or problems of disconnection.

    The first, second, and third approaches are based on organic activities or on the initiative of an employee, which generally involves the creation of group music. The fourth occurs when a proactive approach to music is taken in a community to achieve a broader social or cultural development outcome. Organizational and financial assistance from third parties may be available, and activities are generally free for participants.
