    How to use "Dixieland" in context?

    The popular music style of dixieland was born in the early 1920s in New Orleans, and quickly spread to other parts of the United States. The name dixieland comes from the name of a street in New Orleans, Dixieland Street. The music was influenced by African-American styles such as ragtime, blues and jazz, and combined them with the traditional New Orleans sounds of jazz bands playing brass and percussion.

    Dixieland is characterised by its simple melodies, down-home rhythms and cheerful melodies, which is why it is often used in films and TV shows to set the mood.
