Buddhism and Music, part one

We’ve got a long-standing interest in music; coincidentally, a listener asked us a question about music on Facebook, so we took the subject and ran with it! This is the first of three episodes dedicated to the subject of Buddhism and music. Today’s show is a general overview of the subject, both the question of what is music — how is it used and performed and why we listen to it — and how is music used in a Buddhist context, both ritually and as a form of practice.
