The Significance of Arts, crafts, and Music in Culture

by The Ghana HIT

Arts, crafts, and music are expressions and applications of feelings, imagination, thoughts, and other human creativity. Culture is a way of expressing people’s beliefs. Music, art, and craft enhance memory, improve communication, assist physical rehabilitation, and allow people to express their feelings. Besides, it helps people manage stress and other personal problems. Ghana’s artistic works can be found in hotels, restaurants, theatres, and cultural festivals.

The three categories that can be represented have emotional value and can be presented in visual form. Arts, crafts, and music can be associated with particular cultures. Art involves painting, drawing, photography, architecture, labels, and decoration. Craft involves skill and experience in creating handmade tangible objects that fulfill a particular purpose. The main purpose of crafts is to decorate. For example, mats, woven baskets, embroidery, handbags, candles, jewelry, pottery, glasswork, and woodcarving.

Ghana has four types of music: traditional music, art music, secular music, and popular music. Traditional music involves religious and folk hymns. Popular music includes gospel, high life, hip, rage, and funk. Art music includes classical and jazz, and secular music include love song, protest song, dances, rock, blues, and disco. The act, craft, and culture in ancient music are different from contemporary music due to the influence of Western culture.

The use of culture in music tells a story, while Art gives attention to ideas, feelings, and visual qualities. Craft is a form of work involving the creation of physical objects by the use of hands and mind. There is a flow of emotion in art, which emerges from the heart and soul.

Artists’ performances influence people positively or negatively after listening to or watching. Though artists entertain the public most of them misuse arts, crafts, and culture without focusing on the role of acts crafts and culture play in music. Sometimes lyrics, arts, crafts, and culture are given different information.

The combination of arts, crafts, and culture in music is Sometimes confusing. A piece of art or craft has an intended meaning that provokes a person’s feelings and harms the brain. It has a limitless expression and endless interpretation, which depends on the person.
