jug band collaboration FeATURING GALA SOLER



"All my Loving" (The Beatles): here I'm playing the washboard, a musical percussion instrument from United States, traditionally used in jazz, zydeco, skiffle, jug band, and old-time music. According to wikipedia, the washboard as a percussion instrument ultimately derives from the practice of hamboning (an African American style of dance) as practiced in West Africa and brought to the new world by African slaves. This led to the development of Jug bands which used jugs, spoons, and washboards to provide the rhythm.Jug bands became popular in the 1920s.
