Music in culture is not a new thought. Many researchers have produced evidence to the fact that cultural artefacts actually have musicians displayed on them. There are evidences of music being included in everyday life. Music was included in the context of a happy occasion such as a marriage or a birth. It was also used in the context of a sad occasion such as a death. This made music a part of the everyday life of people. In addition music is different in different cultures. It differs across race and ethnicity. Black Music for instance is seen to be more hip-hop style; on the other hand American classic is preferred by a different segment. Research studies show that even infants show a preference for music based on the culture of their parents. This shows that music and culture are intertwined. Similarly it can also be said that music and religion is intertwined, as after all it was religion that led people to a way of living. In this context the PhD research would investigate the influence of religion and culture on music. This investigation would have to be narrowed down however because at present there are not much well defined elements identified as in the type of music, the time period, the religion and the culture based on a particular race or ethnicity. These would be defined by the researcher later on. It will be necessary for the researcher to also narrow down on the topic based on the selection of these elements.
