In the Western music history, music was very much part of the culture

cohesion. Look at folk and dance music going way back. Modern example,
for me, is square dance music. The "modern" disco-style emphasis on
individuals standing out is a late arriving alien.

Nothing made by humans is beyond culture, since all humans are embedded
in at least one culture. Even if an individual is rebelling against
their culture, their rebellion is formed by the culture they're
rebelling against.

My non-musical artist daughter says that if a piece of art doesn't
communicate, it's not art; it's just a "spot on the wall."
