At the turn of the 20th century, the city of New Orleans was a melting pot of many different cultures. The city was a French territory during the 1700’s with a short period of Spanish domination. Both French and Spanish settlers shaped New Orleans’ culture. In the 1800’s settlers from England, Ireland, Scotland, Germany and Italy all migrated to this prosperous city, as well. As new settlers arrived in the New Orleans’ seaport, musical traditions from all over the world began coming together in this one locale. African American musicians merged European traditions with the blues, ragtime, marching band music and many other elements to create a new style of music known as “jazz.”
