Blues is a musical genre that has African American origins and is characterized by using three phrases to a stanza and that can be sung accompanied by instruments or being merely instrumental. Blues come from the chants, shouts, spiritual and praise songs of African slaves. That can be seen today in the call-and-response nature of blues. Moreover, blues is often associated to depression and sadness. The subject matter of this genre is diverse and ranges from a lost love to policy cruelty. Johnny Winter, Howlin’ Wolf, and B.B. King are some of the artists who belong to this genre.
