The Wicked Sound Special Playlist Focused On Black Music: Songs of Protest, Hope and Healing
across Jazz, Funk, Soul, Reggae and Hip Hop music.
We are here because of Black Music, and for Black Music.
Black Music always inspired us, motivate, gave us joy, hope, and reflection.
Birth of Jazz, Soul, Funk, Reggae, and Hip Hop are all rooted in black artists fighting against systematic oppression. But it’s enough!
We believe that that it’s only One Race – Human Race.
The message is short: Fight racism in any form!
Love your Black Sisters and Brothers like you love Black Music.
We made this playlist of important for us Black Music Songs of Protest.
Because this music was always in the front of any cultural and social changes.
To motivate us to fight for a better equal future, but also to give hope and healing in these difficult times.
