Curated by James Brown’s MD, renowned saxophonist Pee Wee Ellis and singer China Moses, FUNK: A Music Revolution celebrates funk’s influence from its early days to latest sounds.

'From 1967 when Mr. Brown and I wrote Cold Sweat until today Funk has been woven into the DNA of popular music. We want to tell that story.' - Pee Wee Ellis

From James Brown & Pee Wee’s Cold Sweat and Stevie Wonder’s Sir Duke to Kool & the Gang’s Jungle Boogie, Funk kickstarted a revolution of bass lines, street wear and attitude that has permeated our music, culture and outlook. Celebrating funk’s influence on dance styles, UK street dance group The Locksmiths join the stage. Bring on the FUNK.
