Bilal on the Blues

Thu, Oct 31, 2013

What is the blues? Where is the blues today? Singer and songwriter Bilal Sayeed Oliver gives us "the school definition," the historical context, and his personal understanding of the blues (and he sings a little bit, too).

Answer some of these questions for yourself at the Wex—Blues for Smoke is on view through December 29.
