Tulsa, Oklahoma is the second-largest city in the state of Oklahoma and 47th-most populous city in the United States. It is the principal municipality of the Tulsa Metropolitan Area. The area where Tulsa now exists is considered Indian Territory, on the land of the Kiikaapoi (Kickapoo), Wahzhazhe Ma zha (Osage), Muscogee (Creek), and Caddo tribes, among others, before it was first formally settled by the Lochapoka and Creek tribes in 1836.

They established a small settlement under the Creek Council Oak Tree at the present-day intersection of Cheyenne Avenue and 18th Street. This area and this tree reminded Chief Tukabahchi and his small group of the Trail of Tears survivors of the bend in the river and their previous Creek Council Oak Tree back in the Tallassee, Alabama area. They named their new settlement Tallasi, meaning "old town" in the Creek language, which later became "Tulsa".

A Hotspot for music,,Tulsa is the birthplace of the Tulsa Sound musical genre. The genre took its influence from the diverse musical genres mix prevalent in the area leading up to the late 1950s and early 1960s: rockabilly, country, Rock 'n Roll, swamp rock, and blues. This genre in turn influenced many other artists, such as Eric Clapton, Elton John, and others.
