Worlds of Music

The exhibition “Worlds of Music“ introduces music as a human phenomenon. Music instruments from all over the world and different epochs showcase the links between sound and nature, humans, spirits and godhood. The exhibition focuses on the influences of music on committed societies such as sacral communities, the aristocratic societies of African, Asian or European cultures or fans of rock and pop music. Another important aspect is the ecstatic effect music has on its audience throughout the world.
