Where Did the 12 Bar Blues Originate from?

Answer

It originated when the Africans were sold as slaves to America and the Africans brought their African syncopated rhythm and enjoined this syncopation with words to create work songs. As the slaves did their work, they sung these songs and in these work songs, the Africans applied a concept called call and repeat, the foundation of the twelve bar blues. Eventually, the work songs changed into what is now called the twelve bar blues.
