Un progetto musicale, un viaggio, una scoperta, quando il funk ha conquistato l'Africa nel 1974
In the fall of 1974 in Kinshasa, Zaire was held the fight between Mohamed Ali vs George Foreman.
For this occasion was organized the music festival:
“Rumble in the Jungle”.
One of the major act was James Brown’s show.
The show of Western musicians inspired a large group of African musicians to the point of generating a wave of local funk productions by major and minor labels in the following years.
The productions from the stylistic and technical point of view have, of course, a totally different character from the American funk, taking the tribal and characteristic characters of Africa.
