When it comes to music, soul and funk are a deadly combination, and Dawn Silva takes full advantage of the two. The result is the worldwide recognition as one of the strongholds of funk music not only in the United States but all over the world.

Music Started Early

A lot of musicians do take a long time before they figure out that singing and playing are what they want to do their whole lives. This is certainly not the case of California-born and –bred Dawn Silva. While she was still in high school, along with her sister, she set up a band known as Windsong, and all played seventies hit music. Back then, she already possessed the funk, which was one of her main tickets to perform with George Clinton, who was a certified king in the genre.
