Neo-Soul

Neo-Soul literally means ‘New Soul’ and is a sub-genre of alternative progressive Soul music that fuses mainly R’n’B, Hip-Hop, Jazz and 70’s style Soul. Although influences of what would become Neo-Soul can be found in the late 80’s with artists such as Prince and Sade, Tony! Toni! Tone! and Omar, it didn’t take shape until the early 90’s when artists such as D’Angelo, Erykah Badu and Lauryn Hill began to emerge.
