Krewe-Funk is an ongoing study of African/Native American folk music and vernacular rhythms, specifically continuums in music that have arisen from and been defined by oppression. Krewe-Funk is a viral ethnography/topography that includes a media wiki archive of narratives, found footage, and personal recordings of long meter hymns from Reed’s great grandparent’s church in Lowndes County, Alabama; and an Interactive Toasting Station for remixing beats, rhythms, and ambient sounds.
