Funk is a term coined in the United States in the fifties, to indicate the characteristics and rhythmic sound present in different areas of music. Initially, the term was used to indicate an approach to jazz music rude and free from adulteration, linked to the blues, with repetitive riffs and a strong pace. Following the adjective funky was used increasingly in other areas of music such as soul and R & B.
The meaning of the word funk (and his funky adjective) in the slang of African Americans generally indicates a bad smell, [1] as the smell given off by the body in a state of excitement, and by extension could mean "sexy", "dirty", "attractive" but also "authentic," that is original and free of inhibitions.
