GET TO KNOW US! This is Noah, Music Moves #ambassador and former participant. We talked to him about what music means and what impact Music Moves has had on Noah. Read his story here.
Introduce yourself. Who are you and what do you do?
I am Noah, 23 years old. I study Humanistics and I am a House and Hip Hop dancer and MC.
What does music mean to you?
I experience music as the most universal and powerful form of communication and expression. I see this in myself in how free I feel to express myself when I dance or rap. Also at the parties I like to go to, I notice how strongly music can connect and lead to precious friendships.
What impact did Music Moves have on you?
Music Moves has shown me how strong music can connect people of any type of group! Music Moves has also shown me that music can be used in many different ways to make people feel heard and included.
What would you like to say to future participants?
I would like to encourage the new generation of musical impact makers, to which I consider myself to be a part of, that they should always be open to opportunities to use music to make an impactful connection with people who are undervalued in society. As a citizen of a society in a globalised world, I see it as almost a moral obligation to contribute to the inclusion of undervalued people in the ways that I can.
What is your favourite track at the moment?
At the moment I am listening to The Anthem by Hip Hop duo Cali Agents from 1998. It reminds me of the sunny spring weather we hopefully have ahead of us!
Thanks Noah <3
