MyВ MusicalВ IdentityВ В В В В В WhenВ theВ wordВ musicВ comesВ intoВ mind, В thereВ areВ tooВ manyВ feelingsВ rushedВ inВ В В

allВ atВ once. В MusicВ isВ theВ worldsВ universalВ language. В MelodiesВ andВ harmoniesВ markВ pavementsВ asВ В В

theyВ areВ heardВ byВ millionsВ aroundВ theВ world. В TheВ importanceВ ofВ musicВ inВ myВ lifeВ isВ tooВ significantВ В

thatВ asВ myВ lifeВ progress, В musicВ takesВ aВ greaterВ roleВ andВ hasВ moreВ value. В MusicВ hasВ alwaysВ beenВ В В

myВ escape. В Harmony, В melodyВ andВ lyricsВ haveВ beenВ aВ guideВ throughoutВ myВ lifeВ andВ haveВ helpВ meВ В В

dealВ withВ issuesВ andВ phasesВ thatВ othersВ couldВ haveВ not. В TheВ soundВ ofВ yourВ favoriteВ songВ orВ artistВ В В

beingВ playedВ canВ beВ soothing, В deВ­stressfulВ andВ relaxingВ toВ one. В ItВ canВ alsoВ beВ aВ motivatorВ inВ timesВ В В

ofВ need, В desperation. В MusicВ toВ me, В isВ aВ memoirВ ofВ stagesВ throughoutВ anВ individual'sВ lifetime. В ItВ isВ В В

aВ markdownВ andВ anВ interpretationВ ofВ onesВ ownВ heart. В В

MusicВ toВ meВ hasВ alwaysВ beenВ aВ toolВ toВ guideВ meВ throughoutВ stagesВ inВ life. В BackВ В В

duringВ myВ childhoodВ iВ wouldВ listenВ toВ whateverВ wasВ onВ theВ radioВ orВ whateverВ myВ parentsВ wouldВ В В

playВ atВ home, В butВ evenВ soВ asВ aВ childВ IВ oftenВ foundВ myselfВ singingВ myВ heartВ outВ asВ wellВ asВ gettingВ В В

emotionalВ toВ songsВ beingВ playedВ onВ theВ radio. В AsВ iВ gotВ older, В iВ startedВ realizingВ В andВ analyzingВ theВ В В

lyricsВ inВ songsВ andВ beganВ toВ interpretВ themВ carefully. В TheВ comfortВ iВ haveВ foundВ withinВ theВ В В

melodiesВ wasВ aВ relationshipВ boundВ toВ exist. В ThroughoutВ myВ adolescence, В myВ musicalВ experience, В orВ В

identityВ wasВ generallyВ skewed. В В IВ wasВ neverВ broughtВ upВ aroundВ aВ specificВ genreВ ofВ musicВ likeВ mostВ В

childrenВ were. В BothВ ofВ myВ parentsВ hadВ migratedВ toВ theВ UnitedВ StatesВ duringВ theirВ teenageВ yearsВ makingВ В

ourВ tasteВ inВ musicВ veryВ diverse. В В ThroughВ them, В asВ wellВ asВ myВ grandparentsВ occasionally, В IВ wasВ exposedВ В

toВ whatВ theyВ listenedВ toВ whichВ rangedВ fromВ 70'sВ toВ 80'sВ hits, В allВ theВ wayВ toВ whateverВ wasВ popularВ onВ theВ В

radioВ atВ thatВ time. В GrowingВ up, В IВ spentВ aВ lotВ ofВ timeВ withВ myВ father. В IВ foundВ myselfВ beingВ moreВ­soВ В В

exposedВ toВ aВ lotВ ofВ ColombianВ music, В suchВ asВ salsa, В cumbia, В vallenatoВ andВ asВ wellВ asВ theВ 80'sВ hitsВ heВ В

knewВ fromВ hisВ arrivalВ toВ theВ country. В MyВ motherВ onВ theВ otherВ hand, В listenedВ toВ aВ lotВ ofВ danceВ hitsВ inВ theВ

lateВ 80'sВ toВ earlyВ 2000's. В IВ grewВ upВ exposedВ toВ theseВ veryВ diverseВ genres. В IВ foundВ myselfВ fallingВ inВ loveВ В

toВ whateverВ wasВ playedВ inВ myВ presence. В IВ heardВ theВ musicВ andВ iВ feltВ itВ inВ myВ soul. В ItВ wasВ apartВ ofВ myВ В

parentsВ identity, В soВ iВ hadВ subconsciouslyВ inheritedВ intoВ mine. В В

В 

AsВ IВ enteredВ highВ school, В whichВ hadВ aВ programВ forВ talentedВ singers, В dancers, В andВ musicians, В IВ beganВ toВ noticeВ myВ peersВ wereВ veryВ passionateВ aboutВ music, В differentВ thanВ myВ passionВ forВ it. В HavingВ concertsВ everyВ monthВ orВ havingВ theВ chorusВ teamВ comeВ andВ singВ intoВ ourВ classroomsВ orВ justВ simplyВ goingВ aboutВ theirВ dailyВ livesВ withВ earphonesВ seeminglyВ gluedВ toВ theirВ

ears, В beingВ harassedВ byВ adultsВ toВ takeВ themВ off. В AlthoughВ IВ didВ listenВ toВ musicВ andВ hadВ aВ deepВ loveВ forВ itВ­В unlikeВ myВ peersВ inВ highВ school, В IВ feltВ asВ ifВ IВ couldВ goВ onВ withВ myВ dayВ withoutВ listeningВ andВ notВ haveВ aВ problemВ withВ it. В AsВ IВ gotВ older, В IВ foundВ myselfВ aВ bitВ moreВ enthusiasticВ aboutВ musicВ thanВ iВ alreadyВ was, В myВ appreciationВ beganВ toВ growВ soВ muchВ moreВ deeply, В butВ itВ grewВ toВ theВ fullestВ whenВ IВ wasВ aboutВ fifteenВ orВ so. В IВ hadВ begunВ toВ listenВ toВ aВ lotВ ofВ Paramore. В AВ newlyВ formedВ alternativeВ popВ rockВ bandВ thatВ iВ hadВ discoveredВ atВ thatВ time, В andВ instantlyВ fellВ inВ love. В AfterВ thisВ discovermentВ iВ wasВ hookedВ onВ theirВ album, В replayingВ itВ dayВ andВ night, В andВ makingВ itВ myВ morningВ commuteВ toВ school. В However, В ItВ wasn'tВ untilВ IВ wasВ invitedВ toВ aВ ParamoreВ concertВ thatВ IВ learnedВ whatВ allВ theВ fussВ wasВ aboutВ whenВ itВ cameВ toВ music. В В...
