 Music of the United States - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Instead, the music of the United States is that of dozens or hundreds of indigenous and immigrant groups, all of which developed largely in regional isolation until the American Civil War, when people from across the country were brought together in army units, trading musical styles and practices.
Jean Ferris, another music historian, called these composers "Yankee pioneers (who were) untouched by the influence of their sophisticated European contemporaries" and who were not entirely aware of the development of "tonality (as) the major harmonic system" of European classical music.
In the early 20th century, George Gershwin was greatly influenced by African American music; however, this was during an era of legally enforced "Jim Crow" segregation during which his music perhaps enjoyed undue fame owing to the refusal of white listeners to listen to music that formed Gershwin's sources.

 Race/Music: "Corrine Corrina" and the Excluded Middle
This bifurcating logic, peculiar to the United States (for even apartheid South Africa recognized intermediate racial categories), emerged from the South during the period after the Civil War to become the dominant mode of racial conceptualization in 20th century America (see Davis 1991).
Musically speaking, we have entered an alternative universe: a moderate bolero tempo, with ‘plinky’ arpeggiated guitar chords (dripping with tremolo), angelic vocal pads, maracas and woodblock (sonic icons of Latin romance), and dramatic soli scoring for string orchestra, bathed in studio reverb.
Viewed from the perspective of pop music history, this is quite an important record, as it was the first session overseen by the young producer Phil Spector.
