"Funk music" is a genre of popular music that originated in the mid-1960s and is characterized by a strong, syncopated rhythmic groove, often created by the use of a bass guitar and drums playing in a tight, rhythmic pattern. Funk music also features elements of soul, R&B, and jazz, and is known for its use of complex chord progressions and a focus on instrumental improvisation. The lyrics of funk songs often address social and political issues, and the lyrics are also known for their use of wordplay and metaphor.

Some of the key features of funk music include the use of a syncopated bass line, use of the guitar for percussive hits and rhythmic riffs, and the use of horns and keyboards for melodic accompaniment. It also emphasizes on the grooves and rhythms rather than the melody and harmony.

Funk music was popularized by artists such as James Brown, Parliament-Funkadelic, and Sly and the Family Stone, and it has had a significant influence on other genres such as hip-hop, R&B, and electronic dance music.

The electric piano alternates between playing the rhythm and creating a sliding melody, while trumpets sound in the background, sometimes stealing the melody. The percussion makes for a toe-tapping good time. This is useful for the closing segment of a TV show, game, or transition. Cleanly loopable.
