Madrid with soul
If music genres like soul or spiritual music have something in common is that their proposal goes beyond music. Artists like the Staple Singers, Marvin Gaye, Aretha Franklin, Donny Hathaway, Martha Reeves or Curtis Mayfield made and still make their audience stand in a different kind of spiritual level.
For the lovers ofthe best soul and gospel that find themselves in Madrid the last week of June, there are a couple of unavoidable dates to set in the calendar.
Black is Back weekend
In Conde Duque’s Cultural space, on Saturday the 25th and Sunday the 26th the blues, soul and, in general the best black music aficionados can enjoy the Black is Back Weekend.
This is the 4th edition of an event that has turned into one of the most distinguished ones of the soul and blues panorama in Spain. In the present edition of the Black is Back Weekend you will find artists like The James Hunter Six, TT Syndicate or the Groovin’ Flamingos.

Gospel Living Water
This gospel choir is truly a rarity of the sort, as it’s the only one of this style in Spain, and in addition, it performs spiritual songs fully in Spanish. Spiritual Afro-American music turned up a notch in a fun and full of soul performance.
Gospel Living Water will perform in Teatro Calderón (right in the Letras neighbourhood) on June the 26th at 7pm. A great opportunity for Afro-American music and spiritual sound enthusiasts to relish in half a hundred of the best voices of the actual gospel panorama.
