    Learn about Blues Music with iMinds insightful audio knowledge series. Blues music is a type of African-American folk music. It is concerned with expressing emotions through song. Generally, blues songs deal with tragic themes such as lost love, hardship, poverty and death. Indeed, the name "blues" comes from the emotions expressed in the songs themselves! However, blues songs are presented in a way to make audiences feel better about their own situation in life. This is because they encourage listeners to take control of their lives and move past any hardship. Due to this, blues music is very effective at connecting with its audience. This is best proved by Lead Belly, a famous US musician who was released from jail in 1925 due to his ability to sing the blues! Perfect to listen to while commuting, exercising, shopping or cleaning the house. iMinds brings knowledge to your MP3 with 8 minute information segments to whet your mental appetite and broaden your mind.

  • Broadcasting the Blues: Black Blues in the Segregation Era

  • Broadcasting the Blues: Black Blues in the Segregation Era is based on Paul Oliver's award-winning radio broadcasts from the BBC that were created
    Broadcasting the Blues: Black Blues in the Segregation Era is based on Paul Oliver's award-winning radio broadcasts from the BBC that were created over several decades. It traces the social history of the blues in America, from its birth in the rural South through the heyday of sound recordings. Noted blues scholar Paul Oliver draws on decades of research and personal interviews with performers—some of whom he "discovered" and recorded for the first time—to draw a picture of how the blues aesthetic developed, giving new insights into the role blues played in American society before racial integration.The book begins by outlining the history of the blues from African music through country stomps, ragtime songs, and field hollers. From the heroic figures of black folksong—including the steel-driving railroad worker John Henry and the destructive Boll Weevil—to the content of the emerging blues, the author discusses the "meaning" behind the often coded words of the blues, evoking topics such as playful sexuality, magic and medicine, the stresses of segregation, and commentary on national events. Finally, the author traces the history of blues documentation, showing how our views of the early blues have been shaped through a complex interplay of social forces, and indicating possible lines for future research.

    This book investigates the role of jazz and blues, as cultural kernels, in Komunyakaa's "Copacetic" using dual inheritance theory as a reading mechanism. The book divides Copacetic into four groups illustrating different modes of cultural transmission through jazz and blues. The first group "African American background", (which shows signs of cultural evolution), contextualizes the study of jazz and blues as important expression of African American history and provides a necessary framework for the other three ones. The second one, "Blues as part of poems' titles" illustrates horizontal transmission. The third, "Jazz and Blues figures mentioned in the poems" shows frequency-based bias. The fourth, "Jazz and Blues figures as titles of the poems" underscores the importance of these figures as model-based bias. Put together, the four groups crystallize the important role jazz and blues play as cultural kernels in the transmission of African American culture from generation to generation and to the other everywhere.
