The Blues, An American Original

The Blues / T-Shirt

Brand: The Art Of Soul Ltd / Exclusively for The Color Pop Shop

The blues is the inheritance of a soulful sound from Black American culture. It signifies an everyday lifestyle of joy and pain infused with song, music and dance. The blues is incorporated with fierce powerful elements of southern gospel and spiritual vocals. It's timespan reaches all the way back to the cotton fields of Delta Blues on up to the modern blues of today. Presently, the blues is being sung by various nationalities all over the world.

In a little old jukebox in Mississippi on a Saturday night, party-goers would dance the night away while listening to the blues. On a hot Sunday morning, preachers would preach the gospel with a blues fervor while the saints would sweat and wave their fans. These moments are the seeds of the blues. R&B and Jazz musicians have borrowed scats, riffs and musical modulations from the blues. Today, the blues is a significant part of urban and pop culture DNA. The modern day popularity of the blues speaks to this music genre's universal, timeless appeal. The blues could be happy and the blues could be sad, but the blues will never leave us. It is soul music's main ingredient. It is an American original. It is part of the human experience.

T-shirts are my daily wear since I work from home. Blue is such a great shade as it works with all other solid colors – so jeans or khaki and you are good to go.
