Today, I am very happy to launch the World Wide Dance Party Podcast. The first episode is entitled "Funk Tales of the Bay Area".
What do Sly & The Family Stone, Afrolicious, Con Brio, Bayonics, The Park,Official Tower of Power Band, Darondo, Digital Underground, The Headhunters, Santana, Afrofunk Experience, Little Sister, all have in common? They are from the bay and they are funky as hell.
This episode pays homage to the funky sounds and souls that came out of the Bay Area counter-culture and civil rights movement in the 1960s and 1970s. We also explore the impact it had on more recent Bay Area artists --- such as Digital Underground, Afrolicious, Con Brio, Bayonics, Afrofunk Experience, The Park, and more. Thanks for tuning in!
