◊ 8-member afrobeat sensation performs a perfect mix of jazz and West-African rhythms
◊ Info & Tickets: http://bit.ly/KokorokoAB
The first pan-European initiative supporting concert venues in their efforts to promote emerging European music.
After the release of Gilles Peterson’s compilation album ‘We Out Here’ last year, KOKOROKO – the eight-member band from London – started turning up everywhere. Their stunning soul/jazz sound is drenched in afrobeat and roots elements. They draw on the West African tradition and are inspired by Fela Kuti, Tony Allen and Ebo Taylor. The band is known for their characteristic sound, one that intertwines the lyrical guitar of Oscar Jerome with the harmonious trumpet playing of bandleader Sheila Maurice Grey, supported by percussionist Onome Ighamre and drummer Ayo Salawu.
Their self-titled debut EP was released in March via Brownswood Recordings.
