2019-10-11 Global Funk

Tropical Funk Experience CD cover

Funk may have emerged in the USA, but its roots are clearly African. And as a great, dance-able music, it’s spread across the planet. We hear funky tunes from Nigeria, Brazil, Cuba, South Africa, Poland, Peru, and yes… ethnic funk from the USA as well.
