Blues is a kind of music that developed in the United States from the various musical expressions of African Americans. The style may have developed in the American South. Blues music is extremely flexible, and various musicians have created individual styles of performing it. The blues contributed greatly to the development of jazz. In addition, many rhythm and blues, soul, rock and roll, and hard rock music compositions show the influence of the blues.
