Urban Gospel Music, A Ghanaian Perspective


Urban Gospel is a modern form of Christian music that expresses either personal or communal believe regarding Christian life. Urban Gospel also seeks to give a Christian alternative to mainstream secular music. Urban Gospel is a new trend and it comes in the form fast tempo beats and rhythms fused with rap unlike the traditional or established gospel music style which has slow tempo beats.

This then transcends to say that, rhythms, beats and sound really are irrelevant rather the lyrics that make the song which mostly takes on a religious subject is most important. The lyrics very often have an explicitly christ like nature, speaking about the life, death and resurrection of Christ from different perspectives.

Urban Gospel thus comes in different forms ranging from singing, rapping, spoken word as well as poetry. There is an undercurrent flowing through the river of our church culture, the undercurrent is the integration of urban music into modern praise and worship. Urban Gospel is gradually gaining grounds and with time it would be a force to reckon with.

A whole new movement is here and a wide range of acts are here to push the kingdom business. Tomorrow will delve into the rise of Urban Gospel in Ghana. Do check out more urban gospel tunes here.
