Mojo and Magic in Blues Music

Presented by Kenny Klein.

Co-presented with Jason Mankey.

Blues is an American musical culture with roots in African, Irish and English folklore. Kenny Klein talks about the origins of Blues music, its roots in voodoo lore and Southern magic, the essential Blues rhythms derived from Afro-Cuban drum patterns, and the magic and tribal origins of chant-and-dance traditions like the Mardi Gras Indians and Talking Blues, which evolved into Rap and Hip-Hop. Jason Mankey speaks of how the Blues influenced a generation of rock-and-rollers and led them into Ceremonial Magic and other occult practices.
