You're probably not aware of the change in society made by protest
movements using
traditional-based music. It's been used effectively as a method of
communicating ideas
of social change for the last 400 years (that I'm aware of), not least
contributing to:
*) Ending the Vietnam war
*) The civil rights movement
*) Highlighting the effective indentured slavery of farm workers following
the Oklahoma
   dust bowl
*) Womens' sufferage
*) Ending apartheid
