Funk is a music genre that originated in African-American communities in the mid-1960s when African-American musicians created a rhythmic, danceable new form of music through a mixture of soul music, jazz, and rhythm and blues (R&B). Funk de-emphasizes melody and chord progressions and focuses on a strong rhythmic groove of a bass line played by an electric bassist and a drum part played by a drummer, often at slower tempos than other popular music. Like much of African-inspired music, funk typically consists of a complex groove with rhythm instruments playing interlocking grooves that created a „hypnotic“ and „danceable feel“.

My name is Michel Maillard, music lover since I remember. Thanks to my mother, I got to listen to soul music at an early age. When I heard Jeff Beck Group “Rough and Ready” from 1971 I was blown away. The first article and mix on Funkologie was published in April 2015.
