The Blues was born in the Mississippi Delta after the civil war. Musically it incorporates elements of African music, Field Hollers and Church music. Traditional Blues was raw and earthy style but when electric instruments became popular the style changed. Today Blues has become more then a style, you can find it everywhere, in many styles and with a legion of musicians inspired by its players.
