Biographies, recommendations, sound clips, videos and links for pop’s fabbest femmes
Here, we salute northern soul with a history of its rise and 30 of the best British female northern soul floor fillers.
Northern soul is a peculiarly British phenomenon, although its sound is predominantly American. Over time, however, songs by British artists began to creep onto club turntables.
Featured artists and genres
Brunetta – with or without her Balubas – is a name few Italians are familiar with. However, she remains a cult star.
Discover the best of East Germany’s girl singers as we pull back pop’s Iron Curtain and head behind the barbed wire of beat.
Actress-cum-singer Christine Delaroche is one of our favourite French stars. And we particularly love this 1967 track.
Christine made her name in the 1965 French TV series Belphégor and, almost inevitably, this led to a recording contract. She remained more successful as an actress, though.
