The revival of soul, 50 years after Motown


As the legendary Motown label turns 50, soul music is back and booming, ever since British diva Amy Winehouse hit world charts two years ago.

"While the Winehouse phenomenon kick-started the commercial resurgence of soul, the roots of the revival are older, dating back to the turn of the millennium," said Sebastian Danchin, an expert on Afro-American culture and author of the "Encyclopaedia of Rhythm & Blues and Soul."
