Classic Movie: Straight Up Go-Go Documentary (1992)

. Aug 6, 2009

This was a great documentary about the history of Go-Go. I haven't been able to find it anywhere else, after extensive online searches. I apologize for the quality; it's a VHS rip. Even if you don't like Go-Go this is a great documentary to watch. It does a good job of showing how Go-Go was influenced by West African music, and it explains how it influenced many of today's genres (eg. Hip-Hop, Indie, Pop, etc). Check it out and let us know what you think. Peace.

The definitive documentary on the history of Go-Go, Washington, DC's home grown music form. This documentary explores the African roots of the music, it's humble beginning on the streets and clubs of Washington, DC and the politics surrounding its influence on the youth.
