A pair of compilation albums showcase funk from New Orleans and Colombia

- +

Funk music features on two excellent compilations this week: New Orleans' funk on New Orleans Funk Experience (Nascente, 2010) and Diablos Del Ritmo _ The Colombian Melting Pot 1960-1985 (Analogue Africa, 2012).

The New Orleans Funk Experience caught my attention in a music shop in Osaka, on offer in the store's Xmas sale. Any funk compilation from the "Big Easy" is worth checking out, as the city was not only instrumental in laying the roots of the genre; just about everything recorded there seems to have a touch of funk about it.
