Go-go is a subgenre associated with funk that originated in the Washington, D.C., area during the mid-1960s to late-'70s. It remains primarily popular in the area as a uniquely regional music style. A great number of bands contributed to the early evolution of the genre, but The Young Senators, Black Heat, and singer-guitarist Chuck Brown and The Soul Searchers are credited with having developed most of the hallmarks of the style.Inspired by artists such as the groups formerly mentioned, Go-go is a blend of funk, rhythm and blues and early hip-hop, with a focus on lofi percussion instruments and funk-style jamming in place of dance tracks, although some sampling is used. As such, it is primarily a dance hall music with an emphasis on live audience call and response. GoGo rhythms are also incorporated into street percussion.
