Description

Mississippi Blues is a musical journey down the Mississippi, from Memphis to New Orleans. The blues was born on the fertile soil that lines the banks of the Mississippi River.

Mississippi Blues is a musical journey down the Mississippi, from Memphis to New Orleans. The blues was born on the fertile soil that lines the banks of the mighty Mississippi River.

The album includes artists who were born and raised near the river, many of whom left when they were adults to establish careers and new styles in Chicago, St. Louis, New York and other cities. Whether they stayed in the region or moved away, all of the artists on Mississippi Blues maintained a close connection to their rural blues traditions.

Putumayo began in 1975 as a Latin American handicraft shop in New York City, by then 23-year old founder Dan Storper. Dan majored in Latin American Studies, and on a trip to Colombia found himself in the Putumayo river valley where he fell in love with the indigenous handicrafts, people, and countryside. The company grew to seven shops and a wholesale business selling international handicrafts and women’s clothing to 600 boutiques.
