Think of the 10 songs that define what it means to be young in your community/country.
What do these songs tell us about self-identity and culture?
Our experience using this technique:
In Cuba, we were really curious to know more about the music that would get everybody excited, and that would tell young people’s stories. We asked our co-researchers to think of 10 songs that capture Cuban youth the best. We got a brilliant list of hits that you can check out here. Our colleagues’ explanation on why each song mattered was the incentive for a great conversation about the participant’s identity and experiences as young people.
