Funky Revolutions Favoriting : Playlist from May 4, 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)

  Last week's program resonates so much with the situation in Palestine & the arguments of manifest destiny used to support or justify Zionism that we continue with Part III of our series on the role of censorship & early soul in apartheid South Africa. Dedicated to that nation's role in contesting the occupation of Palestine and the apartheid reality imposed on Palestinians and those demonstrating across the world.
