Funk

Yasuharu Nagura – Retro Tsim Sha Tsui

 Funk is a music that was completed mainly by James Brown in the 1960s. Rhythm & Blues, featuring a new style of Seoul. It’s a very simple chord progression that repeats forever, with 16 beats as the keynote, and heavy syncopation.

Funk is derived from the Congo language, lu-fuki, rather than the English word “frightened” or “dreadful,” and can absorb sweat and body odor when performing or doing something well. It is a word to praise.

The music is repetitive bass forms, drums that intensify violently on the second and fourth beats of the bar (hi-hat cymbals are closed with these beats, following a clapping beat), with clear melodies. Features simple harmony.

As a result, the sound is closer to gospel music than rhythm and blues.
