Idalecio Neves writes eloquently about the relationship between culture (music, art, etc.) and politics.

Culture and Politics have coexisted since the beginning of human life.

Human beings have lived in permanent relation with the environment. This interrelation has allowed men to use what exists in the earth to develop tools and ideas for generations. By creating new relations with the environment surrounding them, people of different parts of the globe found means to express themselves for centuries. These expressions are what can be seen as culture.

While culture has been used to gather different people, differences still exist because of the interests of some leaders. For many situations, countries fight against others and the consequences have been bad for all of them. It is culture that can provide a powerful means to balance the negative effects of the decisions made by politicians.
