Who needs singing? This handpicked playlist encompasses the best in Spoken Word music, in multiple genres. 

 

Spoken words goes back milenia and modern spoken word poetry was kept alive by, early twentieth century poet, Vachel Lindsay. It gained popularity with the Harlem Renaissance, blues music and the 60's beat generation. In the 70's, French singer-songwriters Léo Ferré or Serge Gainsbourg incor, incorporated rock and symphonic music behind is spoken words. 

 

This playlists covers artists, mostly obscure, from the 90's up, that have been redefining what spoken word and music means.

I'll continue to update this playlist ever few months with new tracks I've found.
