Funk is a cultural movement that was born on the west coast of the USA in the mid-60s. Like the Blues did in its time, it emerged in response to poverty, repression, violence and to combat racism that the African American community suffered.
A movement that also became music, created mainly by African American musicians who experimented with the fusion of Soul, Jazz, Rhythm & Blues (R&B) and even some Latin Rhythms.
As a result, Funk, with James Brown (until then considered the godfather of Soul) as the pioneer and greatest exponent of a rhythmic music, very danceable, and often even energetic. Along with James Brown, who is said to have changed black music forever with his contributions, we also want to highlight the figure of Sly Stone, another reference musician in a musical genre that gave prominence to the electric bass (musical instrument) and percussion and that immediately became popular among the nocturnal environments of African American, and also, Latin American communities. A musical genre that helped give identity and pride to an African American culture through music made by them and for them!
