In the northwestern part of the state, the great fertile crescent called the Delta is the old floodplain of the Yazoo and Mississippi rivers, comprising some 6,250 square miles of black alluvial soil several feet deep. The region has been called “The Most Southern Place on Earth,” because of its unique racial, cultural, and economic history. The Delta is birth place of the strongest musical tradition; blues and jazz.
