Christian ethno-music

Each people can develop their own Christian music with tunes they resonate with and lyrics that speak to their experience of God, their circumstances and express their beliefs. Each is distinctively different. There is no need to think that western Christian music is anymore spiritual than indigenous music. To borrow music from outside the culture is to introduce a foreignness to faith expression and suggests that local cultural forms are profane and unworthy for worship.
