KOKOROKO are a young, London based, Afrobeat 7-Piece. We play music we love, we grew up with and our parents got funky to. Inspired by Fela Kuti, Ebo Taylor, Tony Allen and the great sounds that have come out of West Africa, we put on a performance to honour the masters that taught us.
Most of us are London Jazz school kids who met playing in South London. We noticed a void in people like us playing Afrobeat and KOKOROKO - with an all female horn section and proper London fire - was born.
