Soul 1/13


According to Wikipedia, "Soul music is a popular music genre that originated in the African American community in the United States in the 1950s and early 1960s. It combines elements of African-American gospel music, rhythm and blues and jazz." Soul music evolved from a variety of musical styles, including gospel, blues, and jazz, and it is characterized by its emotive and soulful sound.

The roots of soul music can be traced back to the 1930s and 1940s, when African-American musicians began to incorporate elements of gospel and blues into their music. In the 1950s and 1960s, soul music became increasingly popular, and it was embraced by both African-American and white audiences. Some of the most famous soul artists of this era include Sam Cooke, James Brown, and Aretha Franklin. These artists are known for albums and songs, such as Sam Cooke's "A Change is Gonna Come", James Brown's "I Got You (I Feel Good)." and "Respect" by Aretha Franklin.

In the United States, for example, soul music has often been associated with the African-American community and has had a strong influence on other musical genres such as R&B and hip hop. In Europe, soul music has also been popular, with artists such as Amy Winehouse and Adele bringing a modern twist to the genre.

Soul music is known for its emotive and soulful sound, and it is often associated with emotions such as love, joy, and heartbreak. Many soul songs have a strong emphasis on vocals, with powerful and emotive vocals being a key component of the genre.

In the 1960s and 1970s, soul music played a key role in the civil rights movement and was often used as a means of expressing political and social issues. Many soul artists and songs of this era, such as James Brown's "Say It Loud - I'm Black and I'm Proud" and Marvin Gaye's "What's Going On," addressed themes of race, inequality, and social justice.

Soul music has also had a strong influence on fashion and style. Many soul artists, such as James Brown and Aretha Franklin, were known for their distinctive fashion sense and became style icons in their own right. The influence of soul music can also be seen in the hairstyles and fashion trends of the time, such as the popular afro hairstyle of the 1970s.

In addition to its cultural influence, soul music has also had a significant impact on the music industry as a whole. Many soul artists, such as Marvin Gaye and Stevie Wonder, have gone on to become international superstars and have had a lasting impact on the music industry. Soul music has also influenced a wide range of other musical genres, including R&B, hip hop, and pop, and has helped to shape the sound of modern music.

Cool, slick and slightly retro styled, the sound is inspired by classic TV detective series and spy films, setting the scene for danger, crime, mystery, police, international agents and beautiful ladies. The horns secure the complete image. And it' funky, too!
