Music, public health, and health promotion: Can music be a social determinant of health?
Although much of the research and policy development relating to the impact of the social determinants of health has centred around differences in socio-economic position, in occupation, income, housing, education and residential environment, for example, we are in the early stages of understanding the complex way that music works within the psycho-social-cultural field to influence people’s health and well-being. Rapid social change and its impact on individual and community well-being provides many fertile opportunities for innovative research in the music-health space. Music is an invisible thread that weaves between the social determinants of health and relates the individual, through culture and social affiliation, to risk and protective factors relating to health.
