Modernization and development are welcome, but it shouldn’t disgrace Myanmar culture to make it acceptable, Myanmar Music Association chairman U Lwin Myint told the Global New Light of Myanmar (GNLM).

There are criticisms on actions against some music video makings that do not conform to Myanmar culture and he made the comment on it.

“Music, movie and Thabin associations are not authorities, they are just organization. We have limited authority so we summoned them to educate and warn not to do things that shouldn’t be done, and if something happens, we protect them,” he said.

In order not to disgrace Myanmar culture, they always warn all entertainments.

“We are not elders who steadfastly refuse to accept social changes. But we should know what our country is. We should know what our national culture conserves,” said U Lwin Myint.

Being developed is acceptable but people should remember their nationality and should pay attention to the country’s culture norms, he said.

“I like development and don’t like opposing making new things. I accept development that doesn’t destroy the country’s nationality and culture norms. It’s not our business whatever they do in foreign countries but filming music videos inside Myanmar should follow Myanmar culture,” he said.
