Korean R&B Groups and Soloists
Korean R&B artists cite the R&B tradition by emulating R&B instrumentation and gospel-inflected vocals and enhance the tradition through Korean music strategies that invoke multiple R&B genres and vocal styles. While Korean R&B artists are linked to pop groups through their reliance on R&B vocal styles, Korean R&B artists are more immersed in a variety of R&B genres. Korean R&B groups draw on complex musical arrangements featuring horns as part of a 1960s and 1970s soul music aesthetic. Korean R&B groups also draw on the Black female vocal tradition informed by gospel. At the same time, Korean R&B vocalists invoke multiple Black male vocal styles and multiple genres, including jazz and hip-hop. Through this intertextuality, Korean R&B artists participate in a globalized R&B tradition, expanding it beyond the Black/white binary.
