Texas Music In Europe
MetadataShow full metadata
Music has always been one of America’s most popular cultural exports to Europe and the rest of the world. While it is true that many Europeans enjoy American pop music, others also have a deep and abiding appreciation for more "roots" based genres of American music, including blues, gospel, jazz, swing, folk, bluegrass, conjunto, cajun, zydeco, or country. In fact, several American musicians have enjoyed larger followings in Europe than they have in the United States, prompting some, such as Josephine Baker, to relocate to Europe, where they believed they had more artistic freedom and greater economic and social opportunities.
