What Music Do You Like?

Does your church ever argue about music? Do different generations or cultures within your congregation have different tastes? You might want to take in the movie, Crossing the Bridge: The Sound of Istanbul, about music in Istanbul. It’s fascinating to hear the perspective of the musicians, from the young Turkish rappers to Kurdish musicians whose music was banned until a decade ago, to an 86 year old woman who has been singing for 72 years. It’s mostly in Turkish with subtitles (including subtitles for the music). The respect they show for each other is noteworthy.
