of Unit 5
Points: 100
Overview:
For each week in our course, you will consider music as a cultural artifact and be
assigned either a piece of music or a specific musical artist to explore and analyze for
the week. This week, you will be listening to music from the funk genre. As you have
read this week, Fun is a musical trend of the late 1970s that came into music through
Jazz. It referred to a simpler, more blues-oriented style and featured a strong, powerful
rhythmic “groove.”
In addition to your etextbook, you should expect to complete some research online to
respond to these questions. Be sure to use vetted resources—if you aren’t sure what a
reliable source is, remember, you can use the CRAP test to determine if your source is
reliable!
