The land where the Blues was born. It all goes down to this 16,200 square km (6,250 square miles) piece of land laying between the Mississippi and Yazoo rivers in the souther-most part of the United States: the Mississippi Delta that, despite the name, it’s not where the great river meets the Gulf of Mexico. This is where it all began.

Take a 10 minutes trip throught the Delta with journalist and author Richard Grant reporting for the London based The Guardian.
