Funky Revolutions Favoriting : Playlist from January 27, 2024

Hosted by:

Funky Revolutions


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 (EDT)

Favoriting January 27, 2024: Funk å Go Go

Been listening to Washington DC funk, particularly Go Go Funk with the likes of Trouble Funk. Rare Essence & newer to me, Chuck Brown and the Soul Searchers. Sets us up for an exploration of this sub-genre and the Go Go vibe.
