This chapter traces the history of the Baby Dolls through their connection to songs, bands, and musical genres. Reflecting its African influence, black music is made in response to those who will be dancing to it. The varying groups of Baby Dolls of New Orleans can be distinguished to a certain extent by the music and the musicians they are connected to.

Keywords:   Song, Band, Black Music, Dance, Musicians
