POP UP THE SOUL

" We must be conscious that the threat to us is not only terrorism but also extremism, and the politicisation of religion for political and economic gains. We would need to not only be vigilant, but also be consciously, creatively and constantly constructive in our efforts to effectively address and adapt to ever-changing threats. Take for instance – the right to practise faith versus the right to comfort of others – where should be the middle ground or compromise? We have to be aware of and understand our differences, by emphasising on our commonalities so as to build a collective resilience. "

POP UP THE SOUL

Music is simply understood as humanly arranged universal sounds. Akin to religion, music transcends cultures and is capable of evoking emotions and spirituality. Both influence the personal and interpersonal natures of humans. While they share parallels, ‘Pop up the Soul’, examines and raises questions connecting music and religion.
