Art Gallery Museum NabilaFluxus With the patronage of the Municipality Senigallia (AN) and tourism Organizes INTERNATIONAL COMPETITION ARTIST'S BOOK And Visual Arts Theme: ROCKABILLY "MUSIC AND COSTUME" Shows dates in August 1-20/2012 Sala Expò Ex – Rocca di Senigallia – Senigallia AN
The Rockabilly is one of the earliest styles of rock and roll music from the early 1950’s.
Rockabilly is a portmanteau word of Rock (the rock and roll) and hillbilly, the latter a reference to country music (often called hillbilly music in the ’40s and ’50s) that contributed greatly to the development of the style. Other important influences were rockabilly Western Swing, Boogie Woogie, Rhythm’n’Blues. Although there are notable exceptions, its origins lie primarily in the southern United States.
The influence and popularity declined in the ’60s style, but in the late 70s and early 80s, Rockabilly music has a great revival of popularity that he still resists, with associated trends and fashions.
There was a close relationship between the Blues and Country Music since 1920. The first success at national level “Country” was the song “Wreck Of The Old ’97”, held together by “Lonesome Road Blues,” which also became very popular. Jimmie Rodgers, was the “first star of the Country” itself, was known as the “Blue Yodeler.”
Rockabilly music also reflects the trends and fashion of the 50s. A vintage look very pronounced, which reminds us all of the most famous star of the ’50s, Elvis Presley, James Dean, Johnny Cash, but also the time of revival that had characterized the movie screens and in the early stages of rock 80s. Morrisey from the Stray Cats, the slicked-famous apparition of a young John Travolta in Grease. Among clumps slicked, jeans and leather jackets, vintage shirts like bowling, often accompanied by pictures and maybe great written and printed with logos of colleges and sports clubs, tattoos and more.
