Just type in 'best cities for funk music' in your browser and it will spit out all kinds of funk and cities from New Orleans, Atlanta, Detroit, New York and some free download sites.

Another city to check out could be Washington D.C. That's where GoGo music is big. GoGo is a type of funk.

Hi french paris,

Funk is popular where it originated, in the deep south.

New Orleans is the king of funk music, but you will find it in places like Atlanta and Charleston.

It might be popular in other areas but I wouldn't know.
