Minutes of Funk

Intercontinental Groove Station

Listen Again: 24-11-2015, Radio Free Brooklyn

Worldwide selection on this week's Minutes of Funk, with new releases from Little Simz and Glenn Astro & Max Graef, Brazilian and West African 45s from Mr. Bongo's reissue series, and a little reggae session opened by dub poet champion Lillian Allen (Toronto). As always, we dig for the most exciting bands on the contemporary scene, with music from the tuba-driven Sons of Kemet (London), another track from Holy Forest (Brooklyn / The Gambia), and the elegant and melodic instrumental rare groove of Saturne (Paris).
