Yes all EIGHT genres you see discussed in the header originated in the USA SOUTH. Even the first OPERA was performed in Charleston, South Carolina.
Eventually these genres of music made their way out of the USA SOUTH but not before morphing into ZYDECO, TEX-MEX, HILLBILLY, CAJUN, SOUTHERN ROCK, CAROLINA BEACH MUSIC, etc. in the USA SOUTH.
We know for a fact that these eight genres have morphed into over ONE HUNDRED other genres including JAZZ FUSION, HIPHOP, RAPP, SOUL, JAZZ FUNK, etc.
In the next post I will begin to discuss more aspects of AMERICA’S MUSIC!
