Music that is made (or was created) by Black people. The evolution of Black music typically follows the following pattern:

1) Black people create a new form of musical art
2) It begins a rapid evolution in the Black community
3) It starts receiving attention from the media
4) Most (not all) of the White population reacts with ridicule, fear and/or hatred. However, many Whites react with curiosity and admiration.
5) A corporation finds and/or creates a white artist as an alternative to the new Black art
6) Its popularity increases among Whites
7) Black people create some new art and gradually move away from the older art
8) Historical myths are created, which have the effect of marginalizing the Black contributions to the art and exaggerating the White contributions
Examples of Black music include any combination of the following:

Drumming, singing, chanting, dancing, the blues, jazz music, country music, rock music, funk, soul, heavy metal, reggae, R&B, calypso, zydeco, and Hip Hop

Historical Fact: The origins of literally all and any music can be traced to Black people.

Historical Fact: The evolution of all musical instruments can be traced to a Black and/or African invention
