Jazz Music

The "Jazz Age" era was in the 1920's but jazz music acutally came to life way before that with the creativity of Buddy Bolden. Jazz originally started in New Orleans by North American slaves. The slaves were cut off from their African traditions and instruments, so to keep thier culture alive they began to mix their music with the Creole church music and folk songs they were exposed to in new Orleans. This mix of music was named Jazz in the 1920's.
