Music and song are one of the most important parts of Prosperan culture. Music has changed dramatically over the years, but there is always one thread that remains in Prosperan music; a reliance on stringed instruments, and a heavy focus on vocals. Singers have oft been the most well-known people in Prosperan society, and various polls usually tell that the average Prosperan household knows more singers than their local and federal appointed governors.
Because of the long travel times from planets to planets, concerts often take the form of digital or holographic representations of artists. Performers are also usually embedded into large Navy fleets to serve as entertainment on long deployments.
