American Musical Genres

“Almost every country, or nation, has some kind of music that belongs to it, and sounds right and natural for its own people. When a nation has its own kind of music, we call that music “nationalistic” music. Sometimes it’s just folk music, very simple songs—or sometimes not even songs; maybe just prayers for rain banged out on Congo drums. Our country is young and combines many cultures.”
