Throughout the history of this country, the music of African-Americans has had a strong influence upon our society as well as our culture. This music started by carrying the slaves from Africa and is still with us today. The youth of today have retained certain elements within the music to form other unique styles of music. Jazz and hip-hop are two of the most widespread and popular forms of black music ever created. They were both strictly created by black musicians.
Rock music gave shape to many different counter-cultural movements which engulfed the world. Without Rock and Roll, many genres of music would never have emerged, such as: garage rock, pop rock, blues rock, and psychedelic rock. Although rock no longer rules popular music, the styles of the 1960’s still appeal to the ears of those born long after. The utopian frenzy of rock defined the music of that era, and to this day continues to structure the music we call Rock and Roll
Country music is no longer limited to just country; instead it embraces other aspects of music. Without the powerful influences of artists such as Dolly Parton, Garth Brooks and Reba McEntire, the image of country music might have never changed. The roots of country music run deep because of the artists that are passionate about what they

Without the inspiration of the Beatles unusual style rock and roll music would be entirely different, our society would be different. To think in one of the most consequential and disquiet decades, among the myriad of other music groups, four guys from Liverpool played, sang and changed the

You cannot sit in your squatting pose much longer, the other capoerisita’s leg has just swung over you, and your response to his movement must be swift and fluid, you must win this game of “jogo de capoeira” or in English the game of capoeira. This Afro-Brazilian style of dance is called capoeira. This combination of dance, martial arts, and playing for fun has become a world-renowned dance style. With roots in rural Africa, this dance style has been brought and branched out into the urban streets and life of Brazil. Along the way, men have been kicked up dirt with a banging of drum changing the pace of lives for years from enslavement in Africa, to being criminalized, to dancing on stages around the world.

These so-called boy bands have proven to be quite the craze for young teenage girls who invest their time creating loyal followings (fan bases) for them by promoting their albums, making signs and waiting in lines for hours just to see them in concert.
