African oral tradition

Posted by jwilhelm21 on October 25, 2009

I found the article explaining the “music” or “chanting” between African slaves to be very fascinating.  From what I have observed, African Americans culture is very engrained in the beauty of song and dance.  Because of that history of oral tradition going back to Africa, communication through speech and music is extremely prevalent.  The presence of blues, hip-hop and various religios hymns are evidence of this very intgeresting phenominon in African American culture.
