Something blue is happening every monday at Hard Rock Cafe in Bucharest. If you’re bored with all the house music played at the radio stations, tv, pubs and clubs, join in at Hard Rock Cafe for something different. Live bands play there and the sound is great. And every monday a series of jazz and blues concerts are taking place. Artist not only from Romania but also from abroad came to perform here.
That was the case this monday when blues artist Boo Boo Davis came to Hard Rock Cafe. Well, the name should say everything. And where is he from? Well, from Mississippi. Without listening him before I knew it was going to be something great. And indeed it was.
Boo Boo Davis is from Mississippi and he learned music since he was young, from the very fields of cotton. He is maybe one of the last original blues artists. You know that old blues, when you close your eyes and just wave your head forward and backward just saying “Yeah, man”. That music that makes you imagine yourself out there on the porch, smokin’ a ciggar, or driving down the highway with all the windows open.
Actually the blues is the manifestation of the solo vocal afro-american folk music. When a black man was resting on the quay from all the hard work and singing…
just like he was relaxing and chasing away the laziness through reciting, he was actually singing the beginning of the blues.
