    Jazz and Blues Music...


    http://heavenatonce.com/Black Music.html

    Before Jazz and blues in America, there was field music. Field music or picking cotton music is what African slaves sung while working slaving for white people.

    Washboard story and tutorial


    Original washboards were invented by black people to wash white folks closthes with, then black people saw that they could make music with the washboard and that is when they began to use it as an instrument. Like everything else, black folks put down the washboard and white folks picked it up. It's rare these days to see a black person playing washboard but plenty of white folks is playin it.

    Excellent post, Sister A4U! :terrific:

    I love African American history! :toast:

    A further confession is: My name is CherryBlossom and I am a PBS JUNKIE! (lol)

    And through this addiction, I learned of the 1st collection of Slave Songs, published in 1867....It was on a show called "The History Detectives;" and a Black man had this book, part of a massive estate of African American historical artifacts left to him by his mother.


    HERE is a video of the episode

    Here is the book:

    Slave Songs Of The United States (pub. 1867)
