1. BACKYARD BAND VISIT (GHANA, WEST AFRICA)
Go-go is a popular music subgenre associated with funk originating in the Washington, D.C., area during the mid-60s to late-70s which remains popular in the Washington metropolitan area as a uniquely regional music style. It became the official music of Washington, D.C. in 2020.
Cultural origins: Mid 1960s to early 1970s;
D.C. Mayor Muriel E. Bowser makes the official announcement about go-go music during a community celebration in Southwest Washington. Behind her in the go-go sweatshirt is D.C. Council member Kenyan R. McDuffie (Ward 5), who wrote the bill that calls for the implementation of a program to support, preserve and archive go-go music and its history. (D.C. Mayor Muriel E.

McDuffie Ward 5, who wrote the bill that calls for the implementation of a program to support, preserve and archive go-go music and its history.)The go-go sound developed during the mid-1970s and began to take its current shape by the late '70s, and has become known as District of Columbia's answer to hip-hop. Its characteristic formula combined simple funk grooves with instrumental percussion and often rapping. It is a blend of funk, R&B, and early hip-hop, with a focus on lo-fi percussion instruments and melodic jamming in place of dance tracks, although some sampling is used. As such, it is primarily a dance music with an emphasis on live audience call and response. Go-go rhythms are also incorporated into street percussion. Many District of Columbia soul & funk artists contributed to the characteristic go-go sound, but the main pioneers were The Young Senators, also known as "The Emperors of Go-go", known for their hit tune "Jungle", and Chuck Brown & the Soul Searchers, known for "Bustin' Loose", which became a surprise national hit. Later go-go bands include Rare Essence, Trouble Funk, Experience Unlimited, Rare Essence, Hot Cold Sweat, AM/FM, The Junkyard Band, Slug-Go and the Southeast go-go band Aggressive Funk. Bands such as Backyard, TCB, and UCB have gained recognition by being featured in music by rapper, Wale.
