Funky Revolutions Favoriting : Playlist from April 16, 2022

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 April 16, 2022: Their Music Was Hot (Carnal Female Funk from the 1970s Pt 2)

Pt 2 of our series completes our tribute to Betty Davis and we profile Lalomie Washburn & Sylvia, also singer-composer-producers in control of their music and sensual sounds.
