The Weekend Getaway – Part 2. Fresh off the Mothership from the Far East, Badd Kitti totally changes pace with an excursion back in time highlighting the world-wide collaboration that created Electro, New Wave and Boogie Funk.

Listen to Part 1

The Weekend Getaway – Part 1 – A Brand New Segment in which Badd Kitti takes us on a musical excursion to find The Funk in countries all around the world.
For our VERY FIRST segment, we ride The Mothership to the Far East, and dig how Funk found its way into the Molam music of Thailand, and influenced popular music in Japan. Featuring the American Thai Funk band, Khraungbin, Japanese Neo Soul artist Nao Yoshioka, and tracks from compilations, “The Sound of Siam” and “Saigon Rock and Soul”

Very special thanks to Prof. Ed Onasi and the students at Ursinus College for inviting me to lecture, and for inspiring this new segment!
