The 60’s were a revelation for many and the music of that time was in-arguably a huge catalyst for change. The soft-spoken duo comprised of Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel arrived as the beatnik choir in the midst of the raucous psychedelia. With splendid changes and a deep sense of melody and poetry, their altruistic pop helped ground the hippie movement and drive the musicality of the time towards the romantic poetic side.

Let us not forget the incredible sense of harmony this duo imparted to the world. Not just in their music but in the way they worked with each other to achieve such an incredible and prolific career.
