writer and a scientist and researcher at the Schomburg Center for
Research in Black Culture in New York, Sylviane Diouf, managed to
convince the public that the Blues have a relationship with a Muslim
tradition in West Africa. To prove the relationship between American blues music with Muslim tradition, Diouf plays two recordings. The first playback of the public in attendance at Harvard it is (chanting prayer) calling for Muslims to perform prayers. After that, Diouf Levee Camp Holler play.
The second recording is the old blues song that first appeared in the Mississippi Delta about 100 years ago. Levee Camp Holler is not a blues song that is fairly common. The song was created by the black community of West African Muslim origin who worked in the post-Civil War America.
Camp Holler lyrics of the song that is played Diouf it sounded like a
voice call to prayer - contains about the majesty of God. Like the prayer chant, song Levee Camp Holler stressed sounding words tremble. According
to Diouf, the nasal style between Levee Cam Holler Blues songs that are
similar to prayer is also an evidence of a linkage between the two.
