Book - 2007
Rate this:
The syncopated rhythms of ragtime music sprung out of African American communities in cities such as St. Louis, Chicago, and Kansas City and paved the way for popular music at the end of the nineteenth century. In subsequent decades, black communities fostered and developed genres such as jazz, blues, rhythm and blues, and soul, all of which had a massive influence on contemporary rock and roll. Hip-hop and rap grew in the 1970s and 1980s and directly explored issues facing African Americans through the lens of sharp lyrics and ?electronic ?beats. This extensive survey traces the diversity, innovation, and history of black music in America.
