Blues Aboriginal style

Blues Aboriginal style. Elaine Bomberry "The history of Native musical influence on the early formation of the blues is a story virtually untold. Books written on the blues makes no mention of the cross-cultural exchange that happened between runaway African slaves and First Nations peoples and how this could have led to the formation of the early blues. Nor do they mention that many of the blues greats had Native roots as well."
