the album shows how the ideals of the civil rights movement, black power and black nationalism influenced the evolvement of radical african-american music in the united states of america in the intensely political and revolutionary period at the end of the 1960s following the assassinations of malcolm x, martin luther king and the rise of the black panther party.
featuring groundbreaking artists such as gil scott-heron, roy ayers, don cherry, oneness of juju, sarah webster fabio, horace tapscott, phil ranelin and many others, soul of a nation shows how political themes led to the rise of ‘conscious’ black music as new afro-centric styles combined the musical radicalism and spirituality of john coltrane and radical avant-garde jazz music alongside the intense funk and soul of james brown and aretha franklin and the urban poetry and proto-rap of the streets.
