"FunCOOLio" is a Latvian instrumental funk/fusion band, formed in 2007, in Riga.
Band members previously have experience in other musical collectives: „Dandelion Wine”, russian folk orchestra "Sadko". The name "FunCOOLio" is formed from two words: "funk" (style name) and "Coolio" - R `n` B performer, very popular in 90 - ties. Band name and main idea is to combine the 70-ties funk music with modern electronic music elements, typically used by DJs and electronic music producers (scratch, loops, etc).
