To say that music reflects ones emotional states and serves as a solution to understand ones inner self can be seen as cliché, however only by those never affected by it. Roles of music may vary, although some remain the same globally - its purpose is to bring joy. As simplistic as it seems, it takes an extensive process of critical analysis on many levels to come to the above conclusion. This process is the main goal of my work.

Gone are the times of hermetic subcultures; globalisation of today’s world also affected the music. Merging genres is a common phenomenon; an extension of two emotional states from two opposite sides of one spectrum. Millennial generations raised in two different worlds- for example Eastern and Western Europe- tend to explore the past in order to be able to understand ‘the now’ and to recognise where to go in the future. One of the ways of the above mentioned exploration is music, or to be more precise, music revivalism.
