Then & Now: Cultural Connections Through Music!

Based on the curriculum of the Music and Society – Africana Studies minor, this show is going to analyze the historical stylings of American music genres (spirituals, blues, jazz, folk, etc.,) and make cultural, societal, and musical connections to current styles of music (alternative, pop, indie, punk, hip-hop, etc,.). Each week, I will be presenting songs in pairs – one song from the “past”, and one song from the “present” – in an effort to connect cultures and decode the messages in these songs in a way that fits our current society.
