If you’ve heard music before, you’ve heard the blues. It runs through opera and classical; it’s woven into spiritual and folk; it spans time and the human experience. But really, it came into its own, and its own name, in the early 1900s, a culmination of call-and-response work and spiritual songs using repetition and shared experience as a way of processing or challenging pain, humiliation, and oppression. The blues has a fairly strict structure instrumentally, but even those of us who don’t understand chords and progressions, well, you don't just hear the blues, you feel it.
Sorry, there are currently no active artists for this genre.
