music has evolved, as well as its importance and function within society. From cultural aspects, religious, war or festive aspects Coming from as early as the Neolithic period, we preserve myths alluding to the power of music over men and its effectiveness in exorcising demons, which is why the origin of music was in the hands of magicians and sorcerers.

Egyptians attribute the creation of music to their god Osiris. On the other hand, the Hindus to Brahma, the Jews to Jubal and the Greeks to Apollo or Orpheus, When Maestro Pindar theorized about music in the VI BC., the Chinese had been talking about octaves and semitones for 2,000 years, and relating music to the twelve moods and twelve monthsThe Achaeans or Greeks of the golden age related music, poetry and history through these arts they familiarized the people with their past.

For their part, the Phrygians introduced in Greece, in their cult of Cybeles, orgiastic music, flute music, the so-called Phrygian mode popular among the masses and seen by moralists as a danger to good morals This wild music, the first to be imitated by other Mediterranean peoples, spread throughout the Greek world of Asia Minor and served in the rites of Dionysus, god of wine.
