  • Concorde 2, Brighton

We are delighted to be bringing KOKOROKO to Concorde 2. KOKOROKO channel the greats of West Africa through a jazz-rooted approach, building on the foundations laid by Fela Kuti, Tony Allen and Ebo Taylor; they lace interrelated influences together into a soul shaking, horn fueled sound. They draw from the music they grew up with, the echoes of Afrobeat and highlife heard in melodies, drum patterns and harmonised vocals.

KOKOROKO are:

Sheila Maurice-Grey - Trumpet
Cassie Kinoshi - Saxophone
Richie Seivewright Trombone
Oscar Jerome - Guitar
Yohan Kebede - Keys
Mutale Chashi - Bass
Ayo Salawu - Drums
Onome Edgeworth - Percussion
