“Live Art from the 2nd Annual LB Funkfest”

Funk i s a music genre that originated in the mid-late 1960s when African American musicians blended soul music\, soul jazz and R&\;B into a rhythmic\, da nceable new form of music. Funk de-emphasizes melody and harmony and brings a strong rhythmic groove of electric bass and drums to the foreground. Fun k songs are often based on an extended vamp on a single chord\, distinguish ing it from R&\;B and soul songs centered around chord progressions.

Like much African-inspired music\, funk typically consists of a com plex groove with rhythm instruments such as electric guitar\, electric bass \, Hammond organ\, and drums playing interlocking rhythms. Funk bands somet imes have a horn section of several saxophones\, trumpets\, and in some cas es\, a trombone\, which plays rhythmic "hits".

Many of the most famous bands in the genre also played disco and soul extensively. Funk musi c was a major influence on the development of disco music and afrobeat\, an d funk samples have been used extensively in genres including hip hop\, hou se music and drum and bass. It is also the main influence of go-go\, a subg enre associated with funk.[1]
