The Erudite and Popular Culture and Music
When we think about concepts like erudite and popular we feel tempted to consider them radically different like black from white or good from bad, but if we analyse the question carefully we will see that both concepts have a lot in common and sometimes their limits can be quite ambiguous.
In general, we consider erudite what is only accessible to a privileged class and popular what is accessible to the majority of people. Commonly, when we think about what is erudite, we think on beautiful things of great cultural value, but when we take the concept popular, we associate it to vulgar or low quality stuff. However, if we think about Brazilian music, for instance, we will find that the greatest artists and compositors are considered popular rather than erudite.
