Dancing Through The 20th Century - 1970s

London, 06.10.16

In last week’s episode we met the man who sired funk, James Brown. Now, music writer David McNamee meets Brown’s heir and competitor, Fela Kuti. And we alight upon the first records in our history of dance music that start to resemble modern dance records, with Giorgio Moroder and the late 70s European disco sounds.
