While its effect on a population has been minimal, music has had various uses throughout history. From being part of ceremonies to voicing whole generations of people, music has been pushing the limit on what it can do in recent years. In the 90s/00s specifically, it was a leading force of change and acceptance in the United States towards the Latinx community. The music industry in the United States was changing with more and more foreign artists getting attention. Even though the change that comes from music might not be as radical, it is generally received well and able to influence a greater audience.
The migration of workers to urban areas, prosperity, and the anxiety of social change all contributed to the development of Rock and Roll and Civil Rights. Social anxieties of the Civil Rights Movement such as: institutionalized racial slavery, segregation, discrimination, and the struggle for equality were strongly exemplified throughout African American music, which would soon transform into Rock and Roll. Essentially, Rock music originated amongst the African American culture deriving from jazz, gospel, rhythm, and blues. Ultimately, these genres together corresponded to create Rock and Roll. Seeing that music has the ability to reflect and influence social movements and interactions, the music that becomes popular can gain national recognition (“Concurrent
I think if this country has any unifying forces at all today, it would be diversity, though in some cases it could turn out to cause disunity rather than unity. I think diversity is a unifying force because it enables us learn and grow through the collaboration of working with people who may think different from you or may have different methods for doing things. Another unifying force I think is present in America today is innovation in the newest technology, or what was known as the Enlightenment in the mid-18th century. As new immigrants move in, they also bring their talents and creative abilities. Through cooperation with Americans here, more is discovered and developed.
These parades gave many opportunities for young musicians to gain more skills and make their way into the musical industry. “The decade marked the beginning of independent (or indie) record companies” (Tyle, Jazz History: The Standards (1920s)). In the 20th century many jazz musicians, bands, and orchestras moved outside of New Orleans. “The Original Creole Orchestra, featuring Freddie Keppard, was an important early group that left New Orleans, moving to Los Angeles in 1912” (Jazz Origins in New Orleans,
Cultural differences between country music to pop-gospel can be stark in not only the style and sound, but also the fan base and message. Country music has been a staple in American culture for centuries. Influences taken from early Appalachian folk music to modern pop-country music today, country music has transcended the changes throughout history. One of country’s most beloved singer and songwriter, Parton has presented many hit songs and country records (Dolly Parton, Web).
The play Joe Turner’s Come and Gone is a playwright set in the early twentieth century when many former slaves began to travel North in search of better opportunity. Taking place in an ever changing environment, each character that passes through Seth Holly’s inn has a very different past and a changing future. August Wilson uses these aspects of character and setting to tell his story, using characters stories as a platform to show the different ways of life that many ex slaves or freedmen had to adopt in order to survive the changing American landscape at the time. August Wilson focuses on characters individually as opposed to on a group basis. By doing so he allows for more character analysis and better background for each individual person.
It was influenced by various things and eventually in the 20th century became the modern Tango in Argentina. A mix of minuet dances, polkas, and African influences all went into developing the Tango. The dance became popular in poor neighborhoods in Argentina and was known as “music/dance of the immigrants”. The dance is multiple different styles of dance because there are many types of Tangos. There is the Tango Salon, Tango Milonguero, Club Tango, Tango Nuevo, and many
This emerging middle class was using the culture from the world around them to create forms of popular music that at the start emulated the foreign bands, and over time was able to become something uniquely Spanish. Bands made types of music that the nation could be proud of, and identify with. So over the course of the 1960s, the people themselves created social imaginaries to dwell

If you ask an American what it was like in the 1920’s I am sure you would get a completely different answer than if you asked an Immigrant. In School we are taught about the “Jazz Age.” We talk about the jazz music, movies, and flappers, but what people don't realize, is that there are two different ways people lived and acted during this time period. The “New Immigrants” who came from foreign countries such as Poland, Romania, and Italy did not have the same experiences as the Americans. These immigrants were treated differently because they spoke differently and had different religions and customs.
Immigration Immigration has had a big influence on many parts of the world, including America. America has been influenced by immigrants from many parts of the world and it has changed America’s history from now to the end of time. It was and is a big topic in other countries such as England or Asia. It has changed the way all countries are today and is still an influencing factor that is changing them even today. Immigrants have influenced the American culture and the American culture has been shaped by immigrants.
The life of an African-American in colonial times was anything but glamorous, working hard hours on farms or in domestic settings with hardly any praise, but they found ways to make it a little less miserable. Making African-Americans slaves was a result of the need for cheap labor in the late 17th century which caused a trade system of humans that was happening internationally. African-American slaves made up a large part the New England colonies. With the majority of them working on farms in the Chesapeake region, crops flourished, which resulted in a stable trade and economic system. The slaves didn’t get a break, working from dawn until dusk, so they had to come up with ways of passing the time.
