'America' has been much in the news lately, but often people
confuse 'America' with the 'United States of America'. America is a land that stretches from the tip of Greenland in the north to the tip of Patagonia in the south. It's a land where the vast
majority of its people are immigrants or fully or partially descendants of immigrants. Same came long ago to conquer and plunder, some were brought to the continent by force, some came looking for
fortune, some came to escape famine, poverty, war or persecution, but the vast majority were not invited by its original inhabitants, those who had stumbled on the continent some 16 to 20 thousand
years ago and had made it home for most of these times.
So when anyone in America, and particularly in the USA, talks about protecting borders, values, culture or ethnicity, they should ask themselves if they are the natives of these lands, or if them or their ancestors were not at some point entering illegally, bringing in new values, alien cultures and foreign ethnicities to this continent.
Because of its recent past, because people from the whole world have made America their home and because the prosperity and development of the continent come from usurped land and forced labour, it is incumbent on Americans to be opened to newcomers, to new cultures, different values, mixing of ethnicities; and for those more prosperous, to be generous and willing to work towards repairing the ills of the past from which their present wellbeing and privileges derive.
From a cultural, and particularly musical, point of view, America is a gold mine of diversity, of richness of sounds that have blended into the myriad music styles from indigenous, to imported, to inspired by diversity.
While America is now struggling with a nasty virus, an economic crisis and a better understanding of its past and of the legacy of that past, let us celebrate the musical diversity of the continent and the talent of its artists!
