Description

Go-Go is to the Washington D.C. area what Grunge is to Seattle or Hip-Hop is to the South Bronx. The definitive sound of Chocolate City has been heard worldwide thanks to pioneers like Chuck Brown, E.U and Junkyard Band. But Go-Go has managed to stay true to it's roots, a genre of music that nearly remains inclusive and underground to it's true fans. Over the last five decades, the sound and style of go-go has continue to evolve. Here is the perspective of the bounce-beat era of go-go from author Maliik Obee, who moved from New York City to the Washington D.C. area as a child and has seen go-go have a major impact on his life.
