Funky Revolutions Favoriting : Playlist from August 19, 2023

Hosted by:

Khalid M'Seffar

Funky Revolutions is based on the One. Since 1994, host Khalid and guests have invited you to groove & celebrate the history of Africana music - the African diaspora and its musical reflections around the world.

We explore the past, present and future of the funk. From introducing trip-hop to Montréal in the early 90’s, to supporting hip-hop’s underground, to presenting ethno-musicographies of jazz, soul, reggae and afro-funk, Funky Revolutions embraces all grooves & the revolutionary spirit of the Funk, from the Black Arts Movement of the 70s to Indigenous defiances & liberations in the (post) colonial world.

Every Saturday 2 - 4pm (EST)

Favoriting August 19, 2023: Shik Shak Shok (Mostly Lebanese Beats)

We end up in Lebanon, inspired by Rainbow Bridges only recording War of Changes from 1972
