Do you know the origin of blues music? Having played the guitar myself for quite a long time now, I never used to inquire about the origin of the different types of music genres that I play. And believe me, I’ve been playing lots of music genres: Rock, blues, jazz, metal, country, classical and so on. And yet, while I’ve enjoyed those kinds of songs, I never asked to myself where do those songs originate from? Who created them? Who composed them? How did they become so famous? What’s the history behind them? ………. Until Now!! A couple of days ago, I stumbled over this website about the history of blues music and I thought to myself that maybe I could write something about it.
To begin, the Blues originated in the end of the 19th century, with its’ roots coming from the early West African slaves in the South of the United States. Its’ origin came from work-songs, chants, spirituals or shouts performed by the slaves. While working for their owners, whether it was in the plantation or railroads, the slaves, at that time would start singing so as to make their everyday arduous and exhausting chores somewhat less depressing. Their songs were powerful with lots of emotions. Their music were mostly about their everyday life, be it be, the drinking, the poverty, the murder, the lost of a loved one, their tough labor or sex.
Amongst the first publication of blues music were the “Dallas Blues” by Hart Wand’s in the year 1912. Then came W.C. Handy’s “The Memphis Blues” a year later. And the first recording by an African American singer was from Mamie Smith’s 1920 rendition of Perry Bradford’s “Crazy Blues”. Great Blues pioneer in the 1920s included singers like Leadbelly, Robert Johnson, Henry Thomas, Blind Jefferson or Charlie Patton. Another big contributor to the blues music was John Lomax who, together with his son Alan, made a large number of non-commercial blues recordings which further popularized the music. There are several subgenres of blues which range from country to urban blues. Very famous blues styles include, Delta, Jump and of course the Chicago blues. In the 1950s came the changeover of blues music from acoustic to electric blues and in the 1960s-1970s came again another form of the blues music, Blues-rock.
As most music genres, the blues also has a very rich and fascinating history which makes it very special. It has become one of the most popular music genres in the world and it continues to interest more and more people, even the new generation. I remember when I first started playing the guitar, I never thought that I would one day actually like that style of music, I was more into the hard-rock kind of stuff but after trying blues music a few times………… well, you know the rest!!
