History of Percussion Instruments

Anthropologists and historians repeatedly speculate that percussion instruments were the first musical apparatus ever came into being. But with the utmost certainty, the human voice was the first musical instrument, and surely, percussion tools such as feet, hands, rocks, sticks and logs came in second to the on-going evolution of music. When humans developed tools for hunting and agriculture, their knowledge along side with skill, enabled them to produce more complex tools. They use slit drum, made from a hollowed-out tree trunk. For instance, a simple log may have been shaped to generate louder tones (log drum) and may have been pooled to create numerous tones (set of log drums).

As time moved on, so is the evolution of percussion instruments. In the early 10th century, it was known that most tribes in Africa use sorts of percussions such as djembe, macaras used in Latin America, karimbas in Asia and seed rattles in Australia for their recreational and worship rituals and sometimes used in sending signals.

Percussion instruments that are displayed in orchestra first came from Asia Minor. In the 15th century, people began migrating east and brought with them numerous instruments. Our percussion instruments got their initial stages there, when the Crusades took back the drums that they found in the Middle East. From then on, evolution of percussion and drums kicked up a notch and assortments of percussion instruments came into being.

Percussion is categorized by a variety of criteria at times depending on their cultural origin, construction and function within musical orchestration. It is generally referred as ?the hearbeat? of a musical ensemble, often functioning close collaboration with bass instruments if present.

Drums and percussions as well as bass are known as the rhythm section of the most popular music genres. Most classical pieces written for an orchestra since the time of Mozart and Haydn are schemed to put emphasis on strings, brass and woodwinds. However, time and again they include a pair of timpani (kettle drums) although not played continuously. But moderately, they serve to offer additional accents when needed.

In the 18th and 19th centuries, more percussion instruments (like the cymbals or triangles) came to being and frequently, again moderately and cautiously played in general. The massive uses of percussion instruments become more recurrent in the 20th century, on classical music.

In almost all types of music, percussion plays a fundamental role. In a military parade, it is the strike of the bass drum that holds the soldiers in step and at a normal speed, and it is the snare that endows that crisp, vital air to the tune of a troop. In traditional jazz, one almost instantly thinks of the distinguishing rhythm of the hi-hats or the ride cymbal when the word “swing” is uttered. In more current popular music genres, it is almost impossible to name at least three or four rock, hip-hop, rap, funk, punk, techno, grunge, alternative and blues songs that don?t have some kind of percussive beat maintaining the tune in time.

Because of the mixture and wide assortments of percussive instruments, it is not unusual to find large musical gathering composed wholly of percussion. Rhythm, harmony and melody are all evident and alive in these musical factions, and in live performances they are quite a spectacle to see.

They also follow their own unique traditions and have a way of celebrating their cultural practices through fiestas and events. The Filipinos naturally love arts and they can depict certain historical events through paintings, poems, songs and writings.

The culture of the Philippines is highly influenced by history and the blending of foreign influences and its indigenous civilization. The Philippines has been colonized by Spain for over three centuries. Hispanic influences are dominant in the Philippine’s folk music, foods, art, religion, language and folk dances.

The Malayo-Polynesian has influences to the Philippines during its pre-Hispanic and non-Christian era. It influenced the country’s mythology and indigenous culture along with the Buddhism, Hinduism, Islamic and Christianity traditions.

The United States also has an influence to the Philippine culture signified by the love of the Filipinos to contemporary pop music, film, basketball, music and fast foods. The Chinese and Japanese introduced martial arts, mahjong and other gambling forms. They also influenced the people’s natural preference to Asian cuisines.

The Philippine Cultural Heritage

Despite the westernization of the country and foreign influences, many of its people remain to believe in superstitions. This cultural belief came from their ancient ancestors.

The country has beautiful traditional folk dances that showcase the elegance, beauty and grace of the Filipinos. They use flaunting Filipino dress and play Filipino music. The dances showcase the Filipino culture.

The Philippines is also a land of artists. Filipino artists are renowned in the world in the fields of music and art. They are highly respectable in these fields and brought honor and glory to their country. The Filipino people are great optimists. They always see light in the midst of darkness and always keep a positive point of view. This makes them endure the various challenges that arise in the economic, political, socio-cultural, religious and other aspects of their way of life.

There are several dialects that Filipinos can speak. They rank high as the country with most dialects spoken.

Issues and Excuses About Losing Weight

We all want to lose weight, some even make a very concerted effort to do so. However, it seems impossible because there are obstacles in our way.

This is true for any major life change or effort. Losing weight though, seems harder than most big changes to deal with.

Why is this? Well, there are some major issues with weight loss that make it harder to do than most things and because of those issues we seem to always be able to form some kind of excuse for why it can’t seem to be done.

I will do my best to tackle some of these issues and excuses in this article and hopefully build a platform for consideration when you come upon these issues and to help try and battle your excuses in your own journey to health.

First, let’s explore some of the main issues and excuses with losing weight.

1. We have to eat to sustain ourselves.

This is both an issue and a major excuse for why a lot of people have trouble losing weight. It seems that since we have to eat to stay alive, and we can’t just quit eating cold turkey, (like any other serious addiction) it takes a considerable amount of effort to accomplish. The key here is control. You can control what you eat and if you maintain control over your diet, you will lose weight. Control is a very real issue for many people and it can be incredibly hard to gain a level of control over some things that you do and in those cases, you have to make gaining control as easy as possible so it can be maintained. I’ve written droves about making control and weight loss as easy as possible and you can find a lot more information on the topic in some of my other articles, but for now just absorb the fact that in order to do something good for yourself you have to make it easy.

2. Eating good food makes us feel good and tastes good.

Another major issue for people that leads to excuses is the fact that good food tastes good and makes us feel good. This is a problem for many people because they rely on those good feelings to feel better about things. Everyone has issues that they’re dealing with in their lives, and I would even venture to say that everyone has some vice in their lives which serves to deliver those all important brain chemicals, dopamine and seratonin. Those chemicals make people feel better about things. Many people rely on food to deliver those feel good brain chemicals, just like many people rely on cigarettes or alcohol or marijuana. For those who rely on food to feel better the very concept of not having those feel good chemicals can be too much to deal with. In those cases, it’s best to try to switch your feel good reliances to something else. Exercise is good because it’s healthy, coffee is good, relaxing is good, hanging out with friends is good, really anything that makes you feel good about yourself can become a healthy replacement for unhealthy foods. It takes serious work to switch reliances though, and it’s easy to see why people make excuses for eating unhealthy foods. In essence they don’t want to lose their feel good chemicals.

3. A significant lifestyle change is incredibly hard to accomplish.

This is the big excuse and the culmination of some of the main reasons people have trouble losing weight. They know it’s hard but they don’t know why it’s so hard. Well, as I said above the feel good brain chemicals play a major part, the fact that we have to eat food to sustain ourselves also plays a major part because if we have to do something it should be as good as possible. One thing to try, perhaps, is to separate the mechanical process of eating to sustain ourselves from the feel good process that eating usually provides, and as I said in the above paragraph, it helps to find something else to rely on for those feel good chemicals. Once we treat eating as a purely mechanical process it’s easy to gain a semblance of control over what we put in our mouths. I’ve seen threads on the internet about a purely nutritional “dog food” for humans. While that would be good, we need variety to sustain a lifestyle change. (This may be another reason why it’s so hard)

All that said and done, the fact remains we need to make it easy for ourselves to change and if we rely on the feel good chemicals that come with good food, we need to place those reliances on other things.

All this may be overwhelming and it’s easy to see why losing weight is so incredibly hard for some people. I don’t blame you, but hopefully I’ve provided a different viewpoint on some of these issues. That may make them easier to deal with.

Junk Food – Sweet and Slow Poison

The one best thing to live for is food, food and only food for the foodies. But do we really look into the taste or its nutritional value. Many restaurants and eat outs have flourished and they make good money out of their business of food.

EXAMPLE: The sodium mono glutamate added in the recipe’s of KFC will lead to negative health results in long term

The carbohydrates present in almost all drinks will damage nerves in the nasal and mouth cavity.

Black salt added in many Chinese items will decompose your bones.

These are just a few to bring out to the light of focus.But we still read it,ignore it and enjoy the taste at the cost of our health.Many newly born kids are born with malnutrition. Who is responsible for this? Is it our taste that we really look into or is it our negligence towards health.The government also has to take several measures and look into the health and nutrition of the people of the country because we always feel that “HEALTH is WEALTH”.

Health awareness has to be brought into the people and see that the nations population is at good health. Many people now are suffering from different kinds of diseases just because of the wrong intake of food. People in this country have got used to corrupt all the materials that we use. We can even find bananas getting ripened in seconds just by sprinkling a chemical on the raw bananas. Where have the ethics of our people gone. Don’t they think of their kids before doing all this.

Looking forward for some miracle to happen to stop all these things.
