We Are What We Listen To: The Impact Of Music On Individual And Social Health
An exciting journey to understand the relationship between music and health.
By: Mundo Arts
According to Caicedo, who, in addition to developing a brilliant international career as a
soprano, is a doctor in musicology and in medicine: "writing this book has been an exciting
process in which I have reflected my experience as a performer and my passion for
research, joining for the first time to my two loves, music and medicine. I have made a great effort to write it in an accessible and clear language without losing the scientific rigor".
The book consists of ten chapters and an exercise book in which the author invites the reader to move from theory to practice. The chapters include such interesting topics as
music and cognition, music and creativity, music in pain and death, rhythm, movement and
health, pleasure, emotion, and music, and a chapter dedicated to the voice in which Caicedo reflects his experience as a performer.
Alfons Karabuda said: "as President of the International Music Council (founded by
UNESCO in 1949), I have dedicated myself to safeguarding every individual's fundamental
right to access music by explaining its values. I can't think of better help in this quest than
with the very inspirational book written by Patricia Caicedo. It gives us confirmation on the
many benefits we have felt that music has given us but without understanding how."
Edited by Mundoarts Publications, the book is published in Spanish, English and
Portuguese. It appears at an ideal historical moment when more than ever, we are aware of the importance of promoting and preserving health at an individual and social level. The
book is available on the Mundoarts website and on Amazon.
