Music is a powerful tool that can bring people the truth, empathy, and also stress relief. When people sing and dance together it creates a sense of community where everyone moves with great intentions and a similar goal.

Peace and Harmony
In certain communities, music is played at festivals in order to strengthen relationships between the community members, and by so doing, peace and harmony continue to exist.
One thing about music is that it can help us recall good memories of legends who gave communities a good name. For instance Bob Marley and Jamaica.
We cannot talk about reggae without including Bob Marley and this has created a great sense of community among Jamaicans all over the world.
Music is a powerful and great stress reliever: Singing, for example, that relaxes the mind and connects us. Also, singing in groups can help reduce loneliness and remove boredom by bringing us together in such a way that no other activities do.
