Nuyorican soul is jazz and house music performed by Stateside Puerto Rican (Nuyorican) groups and artists that originated in the 1990s with themes derived from Nuyorican culture. Nuyorican soul, to a great extent, does not refer to any single style or approach. Some of these groups do not at all, or use many specific Latin instruments or sounds. The main unifying factor, whether or not any explicitly Nuyorican soul is heard, has a strong soul, jazz and house influence; a rather independent and relaxing approach to making music that comes from outside the music industry.
Nuyorican soul is the distinctive style of house and soul music performed by Stateside Puerto Ricans from New York and the Midwest through the East Coast region of the United States that contains themes of their cultural experiences. Although the genre is broad and diverse, encompassing a variety of styles and subjects, the overarching theme of Nuyorican soul is its house influence and incorporation of instruments like the sampler, drum machine and sequencer.
