WEST OAKLAND’S MUSIC LEGACY
The Blues is an earthy, soul-stirring mélange of Black roots music and personal narratives that became the defining soundtrack of Black America.
That soundtrack takes on a local flavor in Northern California with influences from Alabama, Louisiana, Texas, and Oklahoma.
In Evolutionary Blues… West Oakland’s Music Legacy local musicians, writers and historians describe the trajectory of Oakland’s Blues.
