Soul Music

Doesn’t everybody feel sometimes, the need to forget what’s happening around them, the need to be lost in oblivion, where you can relax and ponder over more beautiful things in life, in olden days people used do meditation or enjoy nature, which is technically out of norm nowadays… So the substitute is Soul Music.. Music that can touch your soul..

Wikipedia says ” Soul music is a music genre that combines rhythm and blues and gospel music, originating in the United States. According to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, soul is “music that arose out of the black experience in America through the transmutation of gospel and rhythm & blues into a form of funky, secular testifying.”

The artists which hold me in soul music are

  • Enigma
  • Karunesh
  • Loreena Mckennit
  • Kenny G

    Interesting. I find Kenny G exactly the opposite; Soul-less!
    For really evocative new soul, you cant beat Indai Arie and Erykah Badu
