Description

I did research on the historical events that influenced the development of the Chicago Blues. I found that it started in the 1920s during the Great Migration because some blues musicians moved from the south to the north of the United States to have a better life. I went through the 1940s during the Post-Depression Era, which represents an important step for the resurgence and the growth of this particular unique sound. For example, Muddy Waters is one of the most representative musicians by the way that he introduced new elements inside the art form, which influenced the style. Then I moved to the late-20th century to explain how this sound came out and how, even though there was a period of recession and renewal of this sound, this process led to the final, unique sound that everyone knows today.
