Born on the other side of the Atlantic at the end of the 1950s, soul music is a hugely important trend in black American music. At the crossroads of popular, religiously-inspired songs and rhythm ‘n’ blues, soul has conquered the hearts of music lovers of all ages.

Sensual and stimulating, a soul playlist creates an intimate and warm atmosphere, encouraging well-being. It’s no coincidence that James Brown, Otis Redding and Stevie Wonder’s classics are a firm favourite in commercial settings.

Background soul music is appropriate for environments seeking calm and tranquillity. Ideal for reception areas in financial institutions, restaurants and the hotel industry.
