Moronic racist.

You know, you could make a productive post about the REAL African contributions to music, instead of all this supremacist extremist garbage.

For example: USA music. EVERY genre of music evolved in the USA has African(-American) influence, if not created by AA themselves. People would probably think that the "whitest" genre is bluegrass/mountain music. But in its formative phase, before it spread beyond the mountains as "country" or "bluegrass" as we know them, it included in many of the original bands a banjo player who was black, often migrated in from the South. So there is an African thead in the fabric even of country music from the beginning.

Of course jazz, blues, rock'n'roll, originally played by black people.

but all instruments didn't come from Africa. Even neandertalensis in Europe was making wind instruments.

the first jazz was played on white instruments, based on white Britsh and French tunes. Later there was a jewish influence as well. Many early jazz men were Creoles , and often looked rather white (Kid Ory) There was a strong French influence as well, plus the "Spanish Tinge" described by Morton (Joseph LaMotte) another French Creole. I would say there was NO African influence at all, and the musicians would have been horrified to hear it. What was the FIRST ever recorded jazz band ? the all white ODJB.

Nope. Drums were invented by the ancient Celts in the third millennium B.C.
The only thing black Africans ever "invented" was more black Africans.
Well, you got me there. The blacks are certainly experts at having kids. Especially the ones who cannot afford families. But no problem, they will get welfare on top of donations. But most of the welfare support goes to buying nail polish, mag wheels, flat screen TV's, rap cd's, weaves, and other non-necessary items. If only they would spend it on food you need to cook. Hmmm....I dunno...

Yes. The musical genres created by African-Americans utilized almost entirely European instruments. The saxophone is from Germany. Most other instruments are present in the classical orchestras of Europe.

The banjo is African.

The Italians perhaps got their idea for pasta from the Chinese. Most European music instruments were copied from Africans. The whites invented no music instrument of significance. Most of all, all their great architectures are copies from the Ancient Egyptians. The last two thousand or so years whites could not invent anything of significance in architecture. In Greece, Rome, Britain and Washington DC, what you see is architecture that was invented by the Ancient Egyptians thousands of years ago.

We still have no idea about what whites copied from Africans and called their inventions.

The european traveller is an interesting story, we could as well call him the european spy.

I suspect pianos, saxphones, drums and the likes did not exist in Europe prior to the 11th century. The likes of Mozart and Beethoven could only show up after those music instruments were copied from the more creative Africans.

An indication that major music instruments did not exist in Europe say prior to the 11th century is that the great european musicians showed up in later centuries.

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791) 
Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827)

Ha ha,
no wonder that orchestras did not exist in Europe prior to the era of the "European traveller" because all the instruments which are played in an orchestra have first to be copied from Africa and other places.

Question: How long has the orchestra been around ?

Answer: In the 11th century the first orchestras were made up of small group musicians performing for festivals, 

but the true modern orchestras didn't start until the late 16th century.(!)

The growth of the orchestra was based largely upon works written by composers, which continued to increase in scope as time went by, requiring new members of the orchestra to play the works. Notbale "expanders" of the orchestra would be Beethoven, who brought the piccolo into the orchestra with his fifth symphony, Wagner, who greatly expanded the brass section, Berlioz, who made more extensive use of the harp in the orchestra than anyone before him, and so on. Today, a standard symphony orchestra is anywhere from 90-105 players.

Here we have the key european traveller. And he is from Venice.

"Marco Polo; Italian pronunciation: September 15, 1254 - January 8 - 9, 1324) was an Italian merchant traveller from Venice whose travels are recorded in "Livres des merveilles du monde", a book which did much to introduce Europeans to Central Asia and China. He learned the mercantile trade from his father and uncle, Niccol and Maffeo, who travelled through Asia, and apparently met Kublai Khan. In 1269, they returned to Venice to meet Marco for the first time. The three of them embarked on an epic journey to Asia, returning after 24 years to find Venice at war with Genoa; Marco was imprisoned, and dictated his stories to a cellmate. He was released in 1299, became a wealthy merchant, married and had three children. He died in 1324, and was buried in the church of San Lorenzo.

Marco Polo was not the first European to reach China (see Europeans in Medieval China), but he was the first to leave a detailed chronicle of his experience. This book inspired Christopher Columbus and many other travellers. There is a substantial literature based on his writings. Polo influenced European cartography, leading to the introduction of the Fra Mauro map. "

Part 2

The european traveller copied music instruments from Africans using drawings, then at home the europeans made few modifications of the instruments and claimed to have created new instruments.

Question: From the 11th to the 16th centuries why did Europeans travel from the Carolingian heartland up to the periphery of the continent and beyond?
During their explorations, was there a certain perception of how they percieved others and how others percieved them? 

Answer: Posted by petror on May 8,2012 at 6:35 PM

Although the sincerity of their intentions might be questioned, the primary reason for travel outside the European mainland during the early Middle Ages was the spread of Christianity. Europe was at the time heavily influenced by Christianity, in fact the continent called itself Christendom. As members of a missionary religion, Christians believed they had an obligation to spread that religion elsewhere. Most of those who travelled to distant areas did so with this purpose in mind.
Later, with the advent of the early modern age, trade rather than the spread of religion became the motivating factor. After the publication of Marco Polo's Map of the World, and the fall of Constantinople in 1453, the desire for trade with distant areas became a consuming element in European political affairs. Interestingly, Europeans often conflated religion and trade. When Vasco da Gama was asked by an Indian sultan why he had travelled to that distant land, he replied "for Christians and Spices.

That there were no musicians in Europe in the 10th, 9th, 5th etc centuries only means that there were no music instruments in Europe in those timea and that Europeans copied music instruments from other races in later centuries.
