Youtube Music Reaction Paper

Project description
I want you to use Youtube to research your favorite band and the influence of that style
of music on music around the world. Look up your favorite song by your favorite band
or artist on Youtube. Then follow the links of suggested music in the same style for other
American, Canadian, Australian, or English bands & artists (Countries where English is
the standard language). Compare these other bands or artists to your favorite band or
artists see what you think is different and what is similar. I want you to discuss at least
4 different bands/artists from English-speaking countries (America, Canada, Australia,
England, etc.). These are in addition to your favorite band. Finally, using Youtube,
search for this style of music at the international level find bands/artists in non-English
speaking Europe (countries from Europe where English is not the first language), Africa,
South America, and Asia that are influenced by or similar to this style of music. These
artists should be performing in their own language (if the music has words), not in
English. I am not looking for Bands in Africa that are modeled on American bands, I
want you to find truly international bands, performing in their own language. What is
similar in their music? What is different? I want you to discuss at least 1 band/artist in
each of four different areas of the world non-English speaking Europe, Africa, South
America, and somewhere in Asia (four international bands total). So, you will be
discussing at least 9 bands/artists, including your favorite one. You may discuss more
than the minimum, but you will be docked points if you do not have the minimum bands:
Your band, 4 bands from English-speaking countries (see below), 1 band from NonEnglish-speaking
Europe, 1 band from Africa, 1 band from Asia, 1 band from Latin
American. I am counting the Middle East as part of Asia, rather than Africa, since the
music is more closely related to Asian music. Also, I am counting Spain as a European
country, not a Latin American country. Latin America (for this assignment) includes
Mexico, Central, and South America.

1. At the top of the first page, list the following: 5 pts
Your Name
Style of music you have chosen
Name of your favorite band or artist
List the names of the other bands you are discussing in this paper as well as their country
of origin. Do this for ALL 8 bands (this doesnt include your favorite band). Also,
Africa, Asia, Latin America, etc. are NOT countries. I want their actual country names,
so you may have to do some research. They should include:
Four bands from countries where English is the official language, for example
America, Canada, Australia, and England
Four bands, one from each continent as follows: 1 from non-English speaking
Europe (which includes Spain, Eastern Europe and Russia), 1 from Africa,
1 from Latin America (which includes Mexico, Central America, and
South America), 1 from Asia (which includes the Middle East, South Asia,
East Asia, and South East Asia).

favorite band/artists in this style of music? How is it different?
4. How are international bands/artists music similar to your favorite band/artists in this

Dont just answer these questions, discuss them. This assignment must include 300 or
