Music and Propaganda


Music used for political purposes in Nazi Germany and Apartheid South Africa, as well as Live Aid.

As the word propaganda can be applied to any form of media that attempts to persuade others to think or act in a certain manner – whether it is given this purpose by the creator of the media itself or merely by its disseminator – the world of musical propaganda is formidably large. But it can be a particularly interesting way of exploring music’s interaction with politics, and how music propagates or acquires certain meanings.
