Title - Road Runner Artist - Bo Diddley Composer - Bo Diddley, Willie Dixon, Jerome Green, Ellas Mcdaniel Musical Traits - Not a very deep vocalist, the music was very up-tempo and he had somewhat of normal-high scream to his music, but sounded very well.

First, because I did not planned to watch them and second because Luyano Band is characterized for mixing the native Cuban music with jazz and this interested combination make me be proud of the Cuban culture.

His jazz – rock fusion completely changed the image of rock. His unique sound led the way for psychedelic rock, which was played throughout the wood stock music festival. The way he uses different rhythms and pitches in his songs makes his sound so unique. When I heard his outdoor performance I was amazed at his influential swagger on the stage. Hendrix’s voice and guitar unite together to reel in his fans with his intense playing.
As it started spreading around the world, Jazz made an amazing impression on national, regional and local cultures forming many distinctive styles of jazz.

In searching for a proper concert, I did a fair amount of research, however, I was extremely lucky to be told about the restaurant Amor Cubano in Spanish Harlem. In truth, I went to the venue knowing that the restaurant had good live performances, but I did not know just how amazing the concert would be. On the eve of the performance, we got to Amor Cubano at 7:20pm to find the restaurant packed to capacity, and despite a reservation we sat at the bar to be closer to the music. The group that performed was Son Radical, which is a unique “syncretized” ensemble combining the forces of Juan-Carlos Formell, Carlitos del Puerto, and Jimmy Branly (Washburne, Lecture 3). Son Radical fused elements of traditional Cuban music da ting back to the

In the late 1700s-1840 there was a common meeting place for most slaves called, Congo Square. Slaves were permitted to dance, sing, and play drums on Sundays.
Pink Floyd were influenced by a number of artists throughout their career, helping them towards the sound they achieved on Dark Side of the Moon. Miles Davis, one of the most important musicians of the second half of the twentieth century, helped create modern jazz as we know it. It is reported that Richard Wright would often lose himself in jazz records, particularly the work of Miles Davis, through his hard bop style in the 1950’s, experimental ambient sound in the 1960’s, and his rock and funk records in the 1970’s. Wright has said himself that one of his favourite pieces ever was Miles Davis’ take on Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess from the 1959 Kind of Blue album, which was a key influence to the composition of the chord sequence which forms the song Us and Them from Dark Side of the Moon. The Beatles were a band that influenced Pink Floyd greatly in the lead up to the release of Dark Side of the Moon; most bands were influenced by the Beatles at this time.
The music that played in African American clubs was faster and wilder than the jazz played by the white dance halls, but even the jazz in the African American clubs was tame in comparison to the jazz of New Orleans. King Oliver is the best example of the shift in style that occurred when musicians moved from New Orleans to Chicago. King Oliver's Creole Jazz Band was highly successful in New Orleans. The early New York Jazz music was influenced by ragtime music, which had been popular there in the early 1900s. Scott Joplin had played in New York, and other great musicians followed in his footsteps.

The stringed instruments were the accompaniment; therefor, they began with harmonics, chromatics, and tremolo for various measures rather than having a moving part. The melody was given to the flutes and soloist, Sami Junnonen, who was also very talented. The song was about 22 minutes long and he had the whole piece memorized. It sounded very sad, but soothing simultaneously. There were visuals around the theater, which made it easier to understand and visualize what Lopez was trying to describe when writing the song.
