More than one hundred years ago, Blues music was discovered by W.C. Handy, the African American leader of a dance orchestra.4 The roots of Blues music are found deep in the South of America, where millions of African-American slaves led their lives of hardship and misery. Blues music began to represent their history as slaves and it sort of became their identity. Initially, their audience was their fellow slaves or plantation workers who listened to Blues Music in their leisure time and found a deep association with the songs and their themes.
