Chechnya prohibits music that is too slow and too fast

Chechnya has imposed speed limits on songs, they can't be too slow or too fast.

The aim is to combat what the Russian Republic of Chechnya says are ideas “borrowed from the musical culture of other countries”.

Music compositions must contain between 80 and 116 beats per minute, according to the Chechen Ministry of Culture.

The information was posted on Telegram and cited by several media outlets such as the Moscow Times, highlighting that this decision was made during a meeting of Chechen leaders.

According to the same publication, Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov urged the Minister of Culture to ensure that the music of that republic “is compatible with the Chechen mentality.”

“It is unacceptable to adopt the musical culture of other countries,” said Musa Dadaev, Minister of Culture.

The new decision will ban many musical genres, such as techno or some pop songs, that have beats per minute higher than those allowed now.

The Moscow Times also reported that local artists will have until June 1 to “rewrite musical works in accordance with the established requirements for tempo values ​​- from 80 to 116 beats per minute.”

If they do not do so, they are prohibited from playing or interpreting the themes in the original rhythm that does not respect the new boundaries.
