Modernity shouldn’t disgrace Myanmar culture, warns Music Association Chairman

Modernization and development are welcome, but it shouldn’t disgrace Myanmar culture to make it acceptable, Myanmar Music Association Chair U Lwin Myint told The Global New Light of Myanmar (GNLM).
There are criticisms of actions against some music video makings that do not conform to Myanmar culture, and he made comments about it.
“Music, movie and Theatrical associations are not authorities; and they are just organizations. We have limited authority, so we summoned them to educate and warn them 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 entertainment.
“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 preserves,” said U Lwin Myint.
Being developed is acceptable, but people should remember their nationality and should pay attention to the country’s cultural 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 cultural norms. It’s not our business whatever they do in foreign countries, but filming music videos inside Myanmar should follow Myanmar culture,” he said. — Htet Oo Maung/ZS
