Description

I See the Rhythm is a uniquely visual and poetic introduction to the history of African American music. Beginning with the roots of black music in Africa and continuing to contemporary hip hop, this book takes readers on a musical journey through time. Feel the rhythm of work songs on a southern plantation, see the rhythm of jazz from a balcony in New Orleans. Dance to the rhythm of swing at the Savoy in Harlem and rejoice to the rhythm of gospel from a church pew on Sunday morning.

Stunning art, poetic text, descriptions of musical styles, and a timeline of selected historical events are some of the features that makes this book an amazing resource. Iguas' lyrical text with Wood's vision encompasses the spirit of the times and strengths of the communities where the music was born.
