With all respect I am not trying to have a war of words with you but your very defensive answers, in which you are belittling me while not answering with primary sources your opinion/firm belief?
absolutely nothing that came from Africa survived US slavery?
And your opinion/firm belief? that traditional African tribal music has vanished entirely from Africa after the centuries of the slave trade. Is there any way you can support this with facts from primary, secondary or tertiary sources?
And if this is true how could Blakey learn African drums if it has disappeared, as you contend from prior posts, from the African continent after the centuries of the slave trade.
I understand what was, is, and will always be.
Well then I guess my time is wasted since you understand all. Please leave the personal insults out of your replies.
