Multi-instrumental roots musician Curtis Blues takes you on a world-wide musical journey to demonstrate how today’s music came to be.
American popular music has roots in many different cultures. The American banjo comes from Mali, Africa, the guitar comes from Spain, and many percussion rhythms can be traced to Latin influences from Cuba and South America.
He’ll bring history to life by performing with instruments from all over the world in this interactive program. You’ll learn how different cultures approached building instruments from their unique environments and how their choices still influence the music we listen to today.
