The project consists of investigating how the music that is heard, the ways in which it is heard and the means by which it is heard are being influenced in the construction of the youth identity. In this case the Rock genre will be approached for such purposes, because it is an artistic and social phenomenon that has given identity to young people around the world. In this way, it is hoped that conceptual, theoretical, analytical and creative references will be generated, addressing a series of questions or problems derived from the main question: How does modern popular music affect the construction of youth identity? The research is to be carried out between secondary and high school students (young people between 12 and 17 years of age), but in different contexts, that is, some within the rural and other urban context. In conclusion, it is hoped to be able to demonstrate the possibility and necessity of using music, beyond for recreational and entertainment purposes, as a mass tool for social reflection and dissemination of values that complement education for a peaceful and respectful coexistence between Young people, who will become the adults of the future.
