Afrobeat 8-piece, Kokoroko, bring the West African sunshine to East London.

The relentlessly rhythmic and colourful sounds of Kokoroko have been captivating audiences around the London live scene for many years. Their intrepid horns, polyrhythmic percussion and Jazz arrangements coalesce to create one of the most unique and soul-lifting Afrobeat sounds around.

Inspired by the greats of West African music such as Fela Kuti and Tony Allen, the band simultaneously bring energy, atmosphere and a sense of exotic escapism to every live show.

After noticing a distinct lack of Afrobeat music on the London scene, the young collective decided to put their formal Jazz training to good use and in doing so, created a unique fusion of the two styles. As such, their sound pays homage to their predecessors, whilst remaining fearlessly innovative and experimental.

Kokoroko’s soulful and spiritual compositions, fused with their unrivaled musicianship, make their live shows absolutely unmissable.
