  • Uncovering the Origins of Jazz in African, European, and Caribbean Traditions

    29 ENE. 2024 · This podcast esplores the origins of jazz, tracing its genesis back through the confluence of African, European, Caribbean, and early American musical influences. It argues that jazz arose as a unique creative act of cultural resilience, adaptation, and innovation, emerging from centuries of cultural exchange and hardship stemming from the slave trade. Analyzing jazz's background reveals a history often obscured in traditional narratives.The essay shows how rhythmic concepts, percussion instruments, and improvisatory traditions retained from Africa provided jazz's underlying aesthetic framework. European harmonies, orchestral arrangements, and brass/woodwind instruments also profoundly shaped jazz as a genre. Additionally, circulating Caribbean rhythms and musical forms demonstrated possibilities for hybridization that impacted jazz. Finally, New Orleans is highlighted as the site where these circulating streams coalesced through musical gumbo, with Congo Square and Storyville as key locales in jazz's birth. This multi-faceted inheritance gave rise to a brilliant new genre that continues influencing worldwide audiences.
