Blues Music

I can’t sleep at night/ I can’t eat a bite/

‘Cause the man I love/ He don’t treat me right

He makes me feel so blue/ I don’t know what to do

 

That’s how Mamie Smith sang her woes through a blues song in the 1920s.

This musical genre is little over a century old. First emerging in the 19th century in the deep south of the United States, it was influenced by African musicals.

Who invented it? Not great artist.

It emerged in the southern plantations where black people were bought and made to work. The African American people were the ones who started humming and singing their lives through songs. Initially they were work songs performed with hollers and shouts and chants.

The blues are about spirituality, life and hardship.

But why the name ‘blues’?

The name ‘blues’ was given from ‘The blue devils’ which is a way of describing the hallucinations after heavy intoxications which led to anger, agitation withdrawal or depression.
