Language is the barrier among people from different regions around the world. People could refuse to communicate with others just because they speak different kinds of languages. I think the basis of communication is understanding. If people cannot understand each other because of language barrier, “silence” is the inevitable outcome. People cannot choose their native languages, but they can choose to break this barrier.
Music is the one helps to break the barrier. People from all over the world are able to understand each other by playing music. Through this nonverbal language，every one surmounts the communication obstacle. There are millions of songs played by musicians all over the world. Although their styles might be different, people can get information the music is delivering.
Here's the video of a Japanese Ukulele master Jake Shimabukuro. I think he is really a talented musician, who can get his inspirations from everywhere. He started to play the Ukulele when he was four. He said in his website "“As I got older, I realized that I could also learn from guitar players, drummers, violinists, pianists, singers and even dancers. And then I started to observe athletes. Athletes are artists too. I was heavily influenced by people like Bruce Lee and Michael Jordan – applying their philosophy and intense, mental focus to music performance.”
