For music has the power to enthrall the deepest of the emotions we have been hiding. It is music that can cheer-up your morning, make your day and splendor your night. This World Music Day let’s delve into some bizarre genres we bet you haven’t heard yet!

So, let’s begin our musical journey

Danger

No, its not a statuary warning, its actually a genre. Most “danger music” is purely hypothetical, existing only as written compositions. Well, we can surely thank our stars for it. Danger music is like using the power of music as a weapon. A website quoted “Probably the most infamous piece of danger music to ever be performed was when Japanese band Hanatarash treated their audience to the sounds of a bulldozer being driven through the back wall of the concert venue.”

Psychedelic rock

Going by the Wikipedia “Psychedelic rock is a diverse style of rock music inspired, influenced, or representative of psychedelic culture, which is centred around perception-altering hallucinogenic drugs. Psychedelic rock is intended to replicate and enhance the mind-altering experiences of psychedelic drugs, most notably LSD. Many psychedelic groups differ in style, and the label is often used indiscriminately.”

Drone

In case you want to relax yourself, and put music you to sleep, this is the genre you should probably choose. Drone music is exactly how you’ll guess it minimalist, usually instrumental tunes consisting of long, droning tones overlaid over each other. It is said that listening to drone is like watching a fish tank for a couple hours which is relaxing, smoothing and refreshing.

Splittercore

If you are done with Eminem and Pitbull and you have started thinking that you need something which is faster, your search may end here. Normal “fast” music runs at between 120 and 150 beats per minute. Splittercore, is the fastest of the fast, which runs at 600 bpm.

So this World Music Day, which genre are you going to try?
