How does contemporary music create?
Contemporary music isn't as complicated. Simply, it's music created in the present time. Therefore, contemporary music can be modern in style as long as the song is written in the current decade. The exact moment in which modernism ended and contemporary began is still up to debate.
Traditional music, by contrast, expresses the culture, tradition and history of a country and gives narratives of people and their life in a way that will be always relevant. Thus traditional music, without any doubt, is more important for us as people in a society and a country.
