Why is it deplorable to like American Rap music? I mean most of it is pretty bad lol. I think non western cultures probably have developed complex forms of music, but like everything else it has been lost over time and not as focused on by the writers of history who have a west leaning bias.Never mind the fact that most of the world (deplorably) loves American rap music. Western classical music completely dominates all "local" forms of non-pop music everywhere it has ever been.
Countries like China and Japan (for example) are extremely proud of their cultures---yet even during WWII, during the height of anti-Western xenophobia, no cultured Japanese or Chinese would even dream of attempting to seriously compare what passed as "music" in those cultures to Western classical music, and the teaching and performing of western classical music never ceased being considered a mandatory part of any educated and cultured persons upbringing.
Why did non-western cultures never develop anything remotely comprable in complexity and beauty to western classical music?
