Learn about Blues Music with iMinds insightful audio knowledge series.
Blues music is a type of African-American folk music. It is concerned with expressing emotions through song. Generally, blues songs deal with tragic themes such as lost love, hardship, poverty and death. Indeed, the name ""blues"" comes from the emotions expressed in the songs themselves! However, blues songs are presented in a way to make audiences feel better about their own situation in life. This is because they encourage listeners to take control of their lives and move past any hardship. Due to this, blues music is very effective at connecting with its audience. This is best proved by Lead Belly, a famous US musician who was released from jail in 1925 due to his ability to sing the blues!
