The Multicultural Roots of Rock and Rap

Curtis Blues


American popular music has roots in many different cultures. Curtis brings history to life by performing musical instruments from around the world in the interactive show the Multicultural Roots of Rock and Rap. Students learn how different cultures build instruments from resources in their environments and how their choices still influence music today.
