  1. The Blues is full of west African imagery, lore and spirituality, which is why the church is forever hostile to it.

    Only the typical arrogant, know-nothing white “academics” conclude the Blues which is played by Africans on African instruments (the guitar, banjo) contains polyrhythms, call and response (btwn player & audience/player & guitar) and who’s lyrics are chock full of West African religious concepts, could conclude the opposite.

    Lol, sure a mojo hand is a monkey’s paw, indeed!

    1. Thanks for your interest, CE. Totally not into religion myself but I believe the church started changing its view on blues in the 1920s. Indeed, many bluesmen were church ministers. Hope your mojo’s workin’.
