Finding the Funk

#sxsw #Funk

Starting with Funk's roots in Jazz and the James Brown bands of the '60s, the documentary "Finding the Funk" takes a road trip to the Bay Area to celebrate Sly & the Family Stone, then it's off to Dayton, Ohio, the birthplace of so many of Funk's originators. Next stop on the journey is Detroit, where from the ashes of Motown, P-Funk's Mothership arose, and finally LA, where a new crop of musicians are creating their own Funk history. The filmmakers and legendary artists sit down to discuss the past, present and future of Funk music.
