Album Notes
FUNKMATA is the birth of a new generation of cosmopolitan African musicians namely Robert Bannerman and Roy C.
This new genre of artiste feel that Africa can make its name on the international market with cosmopolitan pop music.
Our music has many flavours to it and is essentially therapeutic in these troubled times.
Evidence of this can be found on Robert's book Pop Poetry at
Our influences date from way back with giants such as Billie Holliday, Charlie Parker, Jimi Hendrix, Gap Band, Rolling Stones, The Doors, Janis Joplin, James Brown, Otis Redding, Wilson Pickett, Aretha Franklin, Whitney Houston, Average White Band, Edgar Winters, Prince and of course Quincy Jones.
As mentioned this music cannot be defined as world music nor can one place it as African music. It is FUNK music made by Africans with a cosmopolitan background.
In January 2007 we were chosen as Top5 finalists by SOTY for the instrumental Realpayback and were given a Web Award.
In March 2007 our single Is it True? was chosen for the suggested Artist of the month by SOTY again. which is a songwriting competition judged by songwriters based in California, voted the song Real Payback in it's Top 20 list of finalists for instrumental songs for the year July'06 to June'07.
This was awarded in June '07.
On the 11th of July '07 conducted a radio survey of the song Realpayback and obtained the best rating of 4 (****)stars for the song. This manifests the potential of that track if airplay was effected nationwide in the States. We are strivng to attain greater heights such as that with hard work and planning.
This is just the beginning, since we are aware that Africa wants Trade and not Aid and will relentlessly pursue our business plan until we break on thru' to the other side.
We are convinced at this juncture many will follow in our footsteps and try to make something out of the blue.
We have the belief. We have the faith. We have the power of the mind. Let's make something happen.
We promise to surprise you even more with our second album TRANCELATION.
