Echoes Cross the Tracks

The mighty Mississippi River bleeds muddy water into an alluvial plain, what is known as The Mississippi Delta. Thousands of slaves were brought in from West Africa to the Mississippi Delta. Their task was to clear the forest with hand saws and axes, build the levees, then till and plant cotton in the newly uncovered earth. It was a place of total isolation from the outside world, known as Plantations. The music helped them endure and flowed like no other place on Earth.
