In our previous playilists we focused on jazz, pop, indie or folk music. This month we want to pay tribute to soul music, one of the sexiest and most elegant styles all around the world. Soul music is originated in the States in the 1950s and early 1960s. It combines elements of African-American gospel music, rhythm and blues and jazz and became popular for dancing and listening in the United States, promoted by record labels such as Motown, Atlantic and Stax.

This modern sound was shorten at the end of the sixties when swinging London bands took their inspiration for mod movement. Beatles, Rolling Stones, The Who… All of them covered soul and r’n’b hits in their early years.
