Tell Your Students: Paul Simon was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2001 and Rolling Stone magazine named him one of the 100 Greatest Songwriters of All Time in 2015. The Rhythm of the Saints is his exploration into the sounds of music from around the world. It is primarily driven by Brazilian, West African, and Central African influences.
