Mass Culture
Jazz music in particular was born in New Orleans, Louisiana which was home to a hybrid racial community of white, creole, and African American communities, as well as strong influences of French culture. This resulted in a variety of music such as ragtime, French and Italian opera, carribean music, and spiritials which converged to form what is now known as Jazz or "hot music" in the 1920's
The first popular blues music began appearing in the late 1900's and early 1910's. Blues music originated earlier than that in the African American communities in the Deep Southern states of the US. 1920s blues focused on a twelve bar structure. Songs would often chronicle the singers personal troubles and daily racial problems associated with being African American in the prejudiced and segregated South.
