Musical Universality

Ted Gioia explains the "growing evidence for musical universality" and asks "why are music scholars ignoring it" — Face the Music. The author notes, "[T]he more deeply I delved into song categories such as the work song and love song, the more I found inexplicable patterns of congruity and similarity, even at a granular level of detail, that required some kind of explanation — and an explanation beyond the standard diffusion or functional models of the social sciences."
