So is there any actual "Music Discussion" going on in these threads or do we just post YouTube videos?

One of the earliest afro funk songs I got into (Lagos was so funky in the 70s). Love the fuzz guitar solo:


"I really like the bongos in this Japanese lounge pop song" is not a sentence I thought I'd ever say, yet here we are. The sax is dope too:


Finally, if that doesn't tickle your pickle, rounding out this Power Trio is some bollywood funk for dat ass:


The drums slap and the video is cool too.

Anyone got something similar?
