The Blues

Blues is a music type of black American folk origin that developed in the rural southern US toward the end of the 19th Century. Blues was apart of the wave in the innovation of Black America music. Urban blues is what gave rise to rhythm and blues and rock and roll. Blues also gave way to Jazz.
