This is highlighted by homebrewed Jazz artist and teacher, Tom Rakoti encouraging people to listen to music for therapy when they encounter hardships of all sorts in life.
He says although music appears to be a simple commodity that is often taken for granted by many, it is in fact one of the most complex and fascinating components available in the universe.
Rakoti of the Senqu Jazz Band fame also raises the question of what life would be like without music.
Several other local musicians and professionals from other fields have various views on how music impacts life and the kind of world people would live in without it.
Afro Pop singer Katamelo 'Silos' Khomonyane of Lisemeng, Hlotse says without music, the world would be a quiet and empty place.
"Our life without melodies and harmonies would be totally empty. “Listening to and playing different tunes help us to get rid of stress, relax and also motivate us in trying times. Music has the ability to convey all sorts of emotions.
“It can be a way of delivering messages, a fine art and a great source of entertainment. The kind of effect that music has on our emotions is amazing, it can bring people to tears or laughter,” he says.
Virtual arts university graduate and Hip hop star Molebatsi 'Dynamite' Phethiso of Maputsoe, says images that music and songs are able to create in people’s mind are uniquely breathtaking.
Music, he says has the ability to transport people back in time just like a time machine.
“It lets us revisit lost and forgotten moments in life. Once I hit my teenage years, music became my life and gradually started taking over my soul. I feel that this applies to the saying that - “music imitates life and life imitates music,” adds Dynamite.
