A pre-emptive explanation: if one speaks to the south of the Mississippi Delta, One does not mean the mouth of the river in Louisiana, but this port of life and vital landline around Cleveland. Cleveland, as well as Clarksdale, are important places in the development and history of the Blues. The city of Cleveland is strongly influenced by its local university, Delta State University.
