Nowadays I love listening to music on Spotify and Youtube Music. I like the Internacional Pop Music. My favorite singers are Dua Lipa, Ed Sheeran, Billie Eilish, Rita Ora, Sam Smith, Camilla Cabelo and others. When they play I travel to a soft place and think about everything. There is one more detail. I only listening to music as loud as I can. My family hate when I begin turning on my sound device.

Yes, I like music. In my country we can find a lot of types of music like modern, classic and indigenous music. I don´t like to go to clubs for listening music I prefer to listen it in my home.

I love music and it's something terrible for me that I'm not able to play any instrument. Normally I visit pub with live music and bands, I don't like regeton but I really love rock and indy.
I hope these new generation came with good music and the new reborn for rock music.

To me music is one of the best life's pleasures, I love the guitar sound, when I was teen I used to play electric guitar at church and still play when I have free time, my favorite genre is hard rock also I listen to any others genres because I enjoy discovering new sounds, bands and singers preferably in English

I love music very much. In fact, I love very different music genres, actually my friends say that I am very eclectic choosing different songs on my playlists. As a physiotherapist working with elderly people, many of them with dementia like Alzheimer´s desease, music is an essential tool to use everyday. It is really amazing to realize how old wellknown songs can litteraly turn people to do things like singing, dancing, even changing their whole mood. It is just like trying to find out the right key to press on, in order to get them more aware of the environment they are living in, people around them and of course, the familiar sounds of their lives.

i think music is one the important part of our life. it can give us energy when we are not actually in a good mood! or maybe sometime it can make us feel hopeless!
so yes! i really fond of music but i don't have any special favorite singer or favorite type of music! i like to listen all of them! it depends on my mood that what kind of music i enjoy that day.

I like music a lot, I'm from Colombia and its known as salsa capital as well as vallenano, cumbia, porro and so on. There different kind of instruments related whit these genres, but most common are piano, accordion, guacharaca, guitar, tamboora.

I like music. When I was younger I played the piano. It was amazing. But now, unfortunately I don't have time to play. I want to play again.

Normally I like to listen music. I would like to attend concert. But I have no abilities to play any music instrument. In my country, street music and rap is becoming more and more widespread. And in addition, using social media is getting larger. Thanks to YouTube you can establish a cannal and you can share your talents with your environments.
