The Death of Classic Music From Eastern Nigeria.
The aim of all music is the glory of God and the refreshment of the soul. It means that the final end of all music is Beauty, for it has always been with beauty that we glorify God just as it has always been beauty that refreshes our souls. God and humanity condescend to each other through classic Music. Classical music is indisputably and essentially about beauty. We need champions in the camp of conservative thought to revive the Eastern classic Music for the benefit of future generations. The death of Igbo classic Music is creating cultural identity crises in Igbo metaphysical mindset.
Some group of Conservatives thoughts from the East is organizing a Music concert that will attract cultural Music artist from across the nation and the globe. Classic Music is more like collective celebration in which everyone joins in and there is no mystery at all only life, expresses and accepted for what it is. When you enter the concert hall from the world of business, laying aside your everyday concerns and preparing to be addressed by the silence. You came in an attitude of readiness not to do something but to receive something. In both places you were confronted with a mystery, something that happened without real explanation and which must be contemplated for the thing that it is. The silence is received as a preparation, a lustration in which the audience prepares itself for an act of spiritual refreshment.
Classic music is like the religious mystery that draws people into it and holds them in its enchantment. It opens for us a door into a space that exists beyond our physical world and what we hear moving in the music through that space is us. It touches those things of value within us and our feelings and confirms how the process which involves your deepest being and has won your whole being. Nothing like this happens at a rock concert. Amen Fiesta approaches music with preparedness for stillness, silence and contemplation. Amen Fiesta will be more like a religious experience that touches the soul in pure organic way.
