It is impossible to know why Williams's blues sound so African, but they do not support the old notion, now discredited, that so-called primitive blues were rough and shapeless and evolved into more regular, melodic forms. He had a unique style of singing and playing the guitar, very reminiscent of African music in fact, giving to each of his performances a hypnotic and improvised mood. the sparse chords and webs of rhythm in Williams\'s playing suggests the work of modern West African guitarists like Ali Farka Toure.
