POPULAR MUSIC

"I believe that there exits a single world-wide music tradition that belongs to the people. It has a different style in different cultures and can be called by different names - folk, pop, roots, country, jazz, etc. I have loved both classical and popular music all of my life and look forward to sharing the great music that I have discovered on my life's musical journey with as many people as I can, using the gift we now have before us: the gift of technology."' - Don Robertson

We are preparing a set of four books, each of these volumes describing one of the four sections of the Musical Kaleidoscope Project. Volumes 1 and 2 describe folk and popular music traditions we have included in the Musical Kaleidoscope repertoire from the musical traditions of Europe, America, and "South of the Border" (South and Central America, Mexico, Cuba and Jamaica).


Volume 1 - Popular and Folk Music Traditions of the USA


Here are a few examples of music we will be including in the project:

  • Popular Music from America

  • Black Gospel Music - African-American spiritual music originally from the Southeastern United States.

  • White Gospel Music - White-American spiritual music originally from the Southeastern United States.

  • Blues & Soul Music - African-American folk music originally created in the Southeastern United States.

  • Jazz Music - African-American folk music originally from the Southeastern United States.
