A comparative and integrative study of the multicultural musical styles of the United States, this class explores the musics of Native Americans, European Americans, African Americans, Chicano/Latino Americans, and Asian Americans from their historical roots to the present. It includes a wide variety of musical styles such as Folk, Spirituals, Gospel, Soul, Blues, Jazz, Cajun, Zydeco, Salsa, Tejano, Hip-Hop and Rap.
