Smokestack Lightnin' Home Page -- The Blues Profile Page

The Louisiana blues is a type of blues music that is characterized by plodding rhythms that make the sound dark and tense. As a result of this sound, a subgenre appeared called swamp blues (based largely out of Baton Rouge and Southwest Louisiana), which emphasizes the dark sound and laidback rhythms of the standard Louisiana blues.
