This is an island in Xiamen, China, once a foreign enclave. Quoting the article:

Gulangyu is sometimes called "Piano Island" and one of its attractions is music; there have been pianos on the island since the first foreign residents arrived in the 1840s. It is quite common to hear piano music (usually recorded and usually classical) in the streets as you walk about. There has been a Piano Museum for about a century, and more recently an Organ Museum has been built as well. Both have many instruments, some dating back to the 19th century, and both have recitals for the tourists.

I think this is worth a mention & a link here, but I'm not sure where it might go. Pashley (talk) 11:29, 27 January 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]

We could make this a very big topic if we list or even mention specific sites of musical interest. For example, the Metropolitan Museum in New York has a great musical instruments wing, and of course there are a whole bunch of important concert halls, opera houses and other major live music venues all over the place. I think your idea is interesting, but I also think we should make some decisions about the intended scope and level of detail in this article before we start a project that could be difficult to place within coherent boundary lines (e.g., what is a truly important venue?).

Why only classical music article?[edit]

Under music genres, why is there only an article about classical music? Is there some important reason for this? Selfie City (talk) 01:00, 9 May 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Any other music genre that could be described as a travel topic could have its own article. /Yvwv (talk) 01:35, 9 May 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Yeah. Like most topics, it was simply one that some person started and others participated in editing. Ikan Kekek (talk) 06:29, 9 May 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]


What about songs, ballads, the French chanson or Swedish visa? Songs telling a story, often sung also at social occasions other than concerts. I suppose some could be put under the folk or pop headings, but I think they deserve to be mentioned explicitly, as a category of their own or otherwise (I do not know how they usually are categorised). --LPfi (talk) 09:36, 16 August 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Virtually every community?[edit]

Virtually every community has some form of music? Are there any communities that don't? I searched a little online and found people saying that music is a human universal. —Granger (talk · contribs) 03:02, 2 April 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I think it is, like language, but I guess the point was to try to keep some wiggle room. Go ahead and change it if you like, though. Ikan Kekek (talk) 03:50, 2 April 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Done. —Granger (talk · contribs) 10:16, 2 April 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I'm not finding it on Wikivoyage anymore, only on Commons. Are files that are uploaded locally automatically deleted from Wikivoyage when no longer in use? Ikan Kekek (talk) 23:47, 5 July 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
