Facts and History of Soul & Disco Music
Soul music first emerged as a result of the black experience in America in the late 1950’s, where upbeat and joyful gospel songs started to evolve into the soul music we know today. Not long after, in the 1970’s, disco music hit the dancefloors. The genre was extremely popular at the time due to films such as ‘Saturday Night Fever’. Although the genre largely fell out of favour in the early 1980’s it has continued through its influences on dance music, and occasional resurgences at club nights. Disco and Soul music both have an exciting history with many interesting aspects, we have done some research to find out a little more about these dynamic genres…
- Ray Charles is often identified as being responsible for bringing soul music to the masses. His song ‘I’ve Got A Woman’ is said to be the first ever soul song.
- Disco is derived from the word ‘discotheque’ which was used to describe clubs where there was no live music played.
- Singers such as Christina Aguilera and Adele are known as ‘blue eyed soul singers’ which refers to white artists who sing soul music.
