Tarah Opara- Folk Music a Tale Through the Times

FOLK MUSIC A TALE THROUGH THE TIMES By:TARAH K OPARA

 Folk Music is dated through the times of the African American Community. With the whimsical way of its authentic story-telling, folk music provided an outlet to be expressive. Folk music is the music of the common people–being that they are able to recite what they have learned, take it as is or make it into their own melody. It provided a safe place for African Americans to learn about their ancestors through the art of storytelling through music. Without folk music the African American community would have suffered greatly, being that our history was passed down by the original composers, most without an name but a deeply rooted narrative.
