Backbeat, which arose in Southern North America, has developed into a global rhythm transforming the laid-back aesthetics of coolness against racist oppression into a powerful expression of Black independence. Its energy has brought together different cultures from all across the globe. Today, Backbeat is the fuel cell and motor of Funk and electronic Dance music.
The driving force behind Defunkt is Joseph Bowie, a master of intuitive rhythms and improvisations, while Kim Clarke is renowned as one of the coolest "groovestresses" around. Together, they will be setting off on a journey through the various spheres of groove. Wear your cool gear, kid!
