Lady Gaga: all music is black music


Recommended Posts

Lady Gaga posted a graphic with the quote "All music is black music."

#BlackMusicMatters

I think she's saying instead of genres like R&B and urban, it's just music. That all genres were inspired by black music.

Thoughts?

Theres a few people saying that she means all music should be open to everyone, including black people (for example, how many black pop artists are there? Even if they release dance music, its classed as urban).

 

Personally though, I think she mean music as we know it stems from black music movements. I mean, look at dance music, disco was a black lead movement. Techno, trance etc and house all originated in underground gay scenes that were predominantly black. 

Jazz, rnb, and literally every popular form of pop can be traced back to black origins, even though it is white dominated today.

Uhmm that's not true. :eheeek:  Maybe let's just say music is a human thing, and we're all equal humans (or at least we want to be/we try to be equal, but we know life isn't fair for many). Music should connect everyone and help us to forget about any divisions. :angietea:

Underrated post.

Not all Music is black music, but probably all rythmic music comes from black people, my friend studied music and she said that too , classic for example is not , but black people have actually shaped probably all the music we hear now on the radio because they are the ones to start with rythm /jazz and drums/beats .... and so was pop music and electronic/disco/house etc created ....
