Blues is an African-American genre that concsists a wide range of emotions and musical styles. “Feeling blue” is expressed in songs whose verses represent injustice or express longing for a better life and lost loves, jobs, and money. But blues is also a raucous dance music that celebrates pleasure and success. Central to the idea of blues performance is the concept that, by performing or listening to the blues, one is able to overcome sadness and lose the blues.

slave trade
Slave Trade

Slaves were taken aboard from their homeland’s Africa, Caribbean etc.

Across the boarder through Europe to find themselves lost in a place they don’t recognise, far away from their original home.

The journey took place from West Africa which is where ‘black people’ were going to be used as slaves were often found. They arrive to the West Indies which is there last destination to attract more venerable ‘black people’ to ship back to America. Which is were the torture commonly took place, and these mistreated sufferers inherit their job to work as slaves for the ‘white people’ in control of this deranged idea.


TruthJazz in music played massive part of slavery, as much as the slaves were tortured in a way they didn’t deserve. They never forgot where they came from, they’d danced and pranced to a new sound they all loved. They brought their Musial roots which sooner or later developed across the country.

Blue’s music was often played with drums which overtime became jazz and was played with many instruments you wouldn’t believe. The Piano became one of them, so did guitars and harmonicas. It was played in similar ways with very different instruments. Music was the only thing that wasn’t taken away from the slaves. It reunited all. And brought them up from their worst days of all.


This picture examines the African having the chance to dance and prance while they could because, they never had the chance to feel comfortable and remember home
