Jazz meets afrobeat

Straight from the coolest underground jazz clubs of London: KOKOROKO. The young eight-piece afrobeat sensation picked up their instruments standing on the shoulders of giants like Fela Kuti and Tony Allen. And even though they clearly inherited the African tradition, KOKOROKO goes deeper and sounds more refined than the old masters, thanks to touching soul & jazz arrangements. The musicians, with 3 beautiful front ladies are all ultra-talented and a true pleasure for eyes and ears. No wonder their self-titled EP will be released on Gilles Petersons’ ultra-hip label Brownswood. A must-see!
