- Scientists at the Tsimanevolk in Bolivia made a remarkable discovery. What is clear to the rest of the world, after a couple of chords, they do not hear. The Tsimane know no difference between sad and cheerful music.
The renowned British journal Nature, the researchers write that the Tsimane are completely insensitive to sad music. What to know musicians like dissonance, inharmonious and unpleasant, because they do not understand in the remote Bolivian jungle. For our ears Eleanor Rigby Beatles a sad-looking number. But not for the Tsimane.
When the villagers with whom scientists did tests dissonance showed exactly evoke the same as the opposite consonance, melodious and pleasant. Both types of music called the same emotion. This is remarkable because the people simply distinguish between, say, a smile and a snarl. The Tsimane make music themselves, but for 'our' ears again absolutely harmonious.
