Abstract

The article deals with the development of Christian popular music (CPM). It reveals that the appearance of CPM was strongly influenced by African and Afro-American music from several directions. Musically CPM can be traced back to the Afro-American spiritual, from which gospel music grew, then blues and finally rock and roll, all of which can still be found among the subgenres of CPM. The article also shows how the direct influence of the African American background can also be found behind the folk masses of the 1960s that appeared in numerous parts of the Christian world parallel with the development of CPM.
