SLUFunk plays music from American R&B and other musics of the African diaspora. It is modeled on a working band: participants make decisions about membership, repertoire, and performances, and are expected take on necessary tasks from engineering recordings to writing arrangements to lugging gear.
For spring 2021, modeling the experience of working musicians will mean finding a way to engage the funk while navigating the impact of COVID19. Just as musicians around the world are re-inventing their ways of making music, we will collectively find ways to work through constraints on our ability to practice and perform in traditional ways.
