Last year, Neo Soul Cafe staffers compiled an impromptu list of music that was deemed as the best music released in 2015. In an effort to reach more people, we thought it would be best to publish the list, so it can be easily be referenced.
We are so excited about this music. It was hard to scale down the list. There is so much dope music in the world and we’ve only tapped in to a small percentage of it. We wholeheartedly feel these artists and their projects have made an indelible impression upon us.
Check out the music. Vibe out! Support the artists by purchasing their music. Then if you love what you hear make a conscious decision to see them in a city near you. There is nothing that can compare to the live experience. Enjoy!r

RED colored the stage and set the mood for presentation that could be described as no less than Fiyah! Solange set the Tonight Show stage a blaze with her stunning performance of Rise / Weary from her latest album “A Seat At The Table” draped in red connecting outfits Solange and her background singers effortlessly performed her latest track. It was pure art in motion. Check out the performance for yourself. Enjoy!
