Originally known as Trubhangrastafunk, T-Funk is the inspiration of bandleader Erik Peters by way of a medley of two songs from different sides of the world, each inspired by music from yet another side of the world. The opening melody was recorded as Labudov Čoček by Demiran Ćerimovic of Vranje, Serbia in 2002 and is essentially an Indian Bhangra melody set in the Serbian Romani trubači style. What follows is the smash-hit Rastafunk by Joseph Williams of The Hot 8 Brass Band from New Orleans, Louisiana. The tunes become entangled, revealing the myriad influences acting on these two, unique brass cultures existing a world apart.
