Unsere Anmerkungen Vielseitig, politisch, kritisch und immer innovativ: Erst der Einfluss schwarzer Musik ließ den Sound vieler Genres entstehen. Diese Playlist verfolgt seine Geschichte, angefangen bei einem Kirchenlied von Thomas A. Dorsey, über den Blues einer Bessie Smith, den Soul von Aretha Franklin und den legendären Pop eines Michael Jackson bis hin zu aktuellen Rap-Ikonen wie Jay-Z.
