This looks like an interesting talk scheduled for the Curry On conference in Rome (July 18-19, 2016), by Oskar Wickström, entitled: "Oden - A Functional Programming Language for the Go Ecosystem"
"..Oden, an experimental, statically typed, functional programming
language being built for the Go ecosystem.. aims to leverage the great
features of Go — static linking, cross-compilation, goroutines, channels
and the great set of libraries and tools — and enable higher-level
abstractions, generics and a safer yet more flexible type system."
