Listen to “Go-Go Music, with Shorty Corleone and Roy Battle: A Craftsmanship Artisan Interview”
This podcast is an audio recording of our story, Washington, D.C.’s Homegrown Funk: Go-Go Music
Go-go music is a rhythm-heavy blend of funk, soul, and blues that is at the very heart of Washington, D.C.’s Black community. And while the style has been influencing Top 40 hits for decades, it’s little known outside the District. In this episode of Craftsmanship Quarterly‘s Artisan Interviews, two key artists in the go-go scene, Shorty Corleone and Roy Battle, discuss go-go’s distinctive sound, growing up in the scene, and why a live show is not to be missed.
