German translation:Sohle mit Soul
Explanation:
sole = (Schuh-)sohle

Because black americans are mentioned in the original document I think you could use (engl.) Soul here to represent the idea of "soul music".

"Sohle mit Soul" would imply the picture of a "swinging" shoe - I can imagine that this also was the intention of the original document.
