African Impressions in Jazz: A focus on Rhythm and Community
Transcript of African Impressions in Jazz: A focus on Rhythm and Community
Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade
Jazz is a North American art form that contains deep roots through many cultures around the world (Mainly North America, Europe and Africa). This art came to fruition in the fusion of many coming together in one area. This epicenter is known to be New Orleans, Louisiana.
The African people arrived in North America through a business to be called the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade.
This trade route connected distant countries across the Atlantic Ocean for many great purposes such as food and raw materials for construction. Some negative aspects of this trade route were materials used for war, alcohol consumption and of course slavery.
Over 40% of slaves came from West Africa. Some Countires included
Senagal, Guinea, Ghana, Nigeria and the Ivory Coast.
