Music Crossing Cultures

Scott Aniol's article on whether we should import Western music into non-Western cultures is thought-provoking and worth a read. Scott's done some careful thinking, and even if you don't accept all his conclusions I think you'll profit from his contribution to the discussion.

This isn't merely an issue for missionaries to grapple with. It's also relevant if your church is as ethnically segregated as most, and you'd prefer that your church better reflects the demographics of your community (and Christ's Kingdom).

UPDATE: Looks like a similar discussion is just starting at the Resurgence blog.
