Genesis is een progressieve rockgroep uit het Verenigd Koninkrijk, opgericht in 1967 door Peter Gabriel, Mike Rutherford, Tony Banks, Anthony Phillips en Chris Stewart. In de jaren zeventig maakte de groep naam in de avant-garde van de popmuziek met haar dramatiek en zwarte humor, maar gooide in de jaren tachtig het roer om met toegankelijker werk wat de bands vele hits opleverde.

Peter Gabriel is an internationally famous musician and Third World activist, and was the original lead singer with Genesis. He is not only known for his Eastern and African-influenced music, but also for several ground-breaking music videos (most notably Sledgehammer, his highest-charting release on both sides of the Atlantic). After leaving Genesis, Peter Gabriel began to experiment with various elements of world music as the underpinning for his dense, poetic lyrics.
