B-O-L-D S-O-U-L S-I-S-T-A-'-S



Unfortunatly the view of FUNK is that it is completly and totally dominated by males. Oftentimes when asked to name a female FUNK artist people will quickly answer "Chaka Kahn, Chaka Kahn, Chaka Kahn, Chaka Kahn, Chaka Kahn" and then quickly grow silent, unable to name antoter female FUNK artist.

However, we know that there would be no FUNK (or life itself) were it not for the females.
