(empo-caallii) The power of self-identification, in a musical sense

Heads up to music lovers who also saw my earlier post The power of self-identification - my view on how we present ourselves.

In the same way that people present themselves, companies obviously present themselves, and their brands.

When you walk into Disney's California Adventure, you hear a variety of music that can be described as "California music."

But exactly what is "California music"?

If you're a reader of my Empoprise-MU music blog, you already know that I asked that very question earlier today.

What you may not know is that this is the first post in a projected series of posts that examines California music, its various definitions, and its various practitioners, such as Lawrence Welk. Yeah, Lawrence Welk. Even though he didn't have a bushy bushy blond hairdo, he's a major figure in the evolution of California music.

I'll be talking about Welk, and selected other people, in the Empoprise-MU music blog over the next few days. If you want to find these posts as they appear scan for posts in the Empoprise-MU music blog with the "empo-caallii" label.

You may note that this post itself, even though it's not in the music blog, uses that same label. In the future, if I talk about a business issue that is specific to California, I'll apply this label for easy reference.
