1910s music. From the year 1910 to 1919

Original Dixieland Jazz Band

The second decade of the 20th century brings very different music from what we have been listening to so far. Up until now, starting from the 1950s and moving forward, reaching the 1990s, and then going back from there. When talking about the 1910s music, reviewing songs from the years 1910 to 1919, we want to remember and discover some of the great classics that more than 100 years later remain in our memory or have been lost forever.

Because if these songs have somehow survived in the collective subconscious, it has been through later versions or through their use in movies or TV series. These are all media that endure, and where the classics resist the passage of time and the technical advancements that have made these recordings very different from what we know from our times.

That being said, our main idea is to offer you a Spotify playlist that contains 21 songs from the years 1910 to 1919, highlighting “La Violetera” by Raquel Meller among our favorites. This song, released in 1914, is one of the most representative Spanish themes in our musical history, performed by a singer we will talk about in the next decade. But, as always, there’s variety, including polka, ragtime jazz, very popular during this era, and more.
