Last month Los Angeles' silky funk outfit SA-RA Creative Partners assembled their funky troops for a performance at Santa Monica's groovy outpost Zanzibar. For those who missed it, dry those eyes — footage from their May 30th performance has showed up on SRCP's Youtube page.

Of course the music is smooth and soulful, but the real question that this video raises is: Who's that funky dude in the chief's head dress?
