Funky Revolutions Favoriting : Playlist from February 17, 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 February 17, 2024: Future à Go Go II

We continue following the (afro) futuristic themes in the Funk, including the techno worlds of Drexciya & Speaker Music. "Afrofuturism is an operating system for Black people to engineer a future beyond the capitalist colonial system we currently live in." Deforrest Brown Jr.
