Forgotten Women of Funk and Soul


Notes

Free of the respectability politics that often proved burdensome for women artists, the ability to sing often provocative lyrics that matched the energetic and electric instrumentation offered a narrative about womanhood that belied the shiny veneer of their era’s pop music. Funk can be served hot and raw, or it can be offered as a delicious side to Soul, but the signifiers of prominent electric guitars and rock ’n roll aggression are always high in the mix.
