Ottawa's Festival of Ideas Since 1997

Music

Music is something to free you from the world
Like dying and going to heaven
To experience tranquility, to be free to let yourself go
To be hypnotised by the lyrics
To feel the music of the gods and dance to your culture
To love the bass or the guitar
To let all your stress melt away to the rhythm
Then to take your headphones off and open your eyes to the world
