It's basically rhythm and blues but with African roots.
Soul genre was named to pinpoint that the songs were sung with a lot of soul in them. To varying degrees, the power and personality of the form were absorbed in disco, funk, and hip-hop, styles that owe their existence to the soul.

Solarpunk is a movement focused on a positive, ecological vision for a future where technology is used for human-centric and ecocentric purposes. It is a literary, artistic and aesthetic sub-genre and is also closely tied to eco-political activism. Solarpunk narratives have a distinctly positive and utopian foundation in contrast to the often dystopian visions found within other "punk" science fiction genres.
Solarpunk is a literary movement, a hashtag, a flag, and a statement of intent about the future we hope to create.
