Gospel TimeS

Music often evokes images. And so some musical pieces, like some perfumes or flavours, are capable of projecting us back in time to make us remember and relive the emotions of the past. A past that takes us far to the south, to the cotton plantations in the United States. Where singing often accompanied blacks during the working day to relieve fatigue. Those songs were, all in all, a Christian reworking of African ritual music. Thanks to Thomas A. Dorsey and his effort, this music is modernized from the ancient expressive modules without betraying the old tradition. An effort that takes shape with the creation of a new genre: GOSPEL.

Gospel TimeS was created precisely to recall those distant sensations, memories and atmospheres, recreating the soul of gospel music. We sing about joy, pain, happiness and suffering… We sing and thank God for each day to come.
The group was born in 2005 from a deep passion for gospel music. The intent of the group is to share gospel music on a journey through flavors and atmospheres of a thousand shades, the different artistic experiences of the members, who make use of passionate professionals, allow a blend of colors with an engaging personality. Professionals of the highest level who manage to transmit the true gospel “sound”. A repertoire full of “spiritual” and “traditional” gospels interpreted by extraordinary American and English voices.

The group is available in various formations. Both in 5tet formation and in formation with the rhythm section.
