Un film réalisé par Paul Manate - Paul Manate, Short Films

It is commonly said that George Clinton is the most sampled musician artist in the world.
Prince, Herbie Handcock, Public Ennemy, Ice Cube, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Primal Scream and many others have been taken inspiration in the Clinton music.
George Clinton has crossed fashions and decades in order to communicate his faith in the total groove, creating P-FUNK, the Pure Funk and inspirating a particuliar spirit made of psychedelism, tribalism and space foolishness.
In July 1995, George Clinton and his thirty musicians stopped in Paris for a four days show in the littre jazz club Hot Brass.
An opportunity to discover the intimity of a very special musical tribe and the personnality of its legendary “gourou”.
