KOKOROKO

Part of Nile Rodgers' Meltdown

Soul-shaking, horn-fueled Afrobeat brings together this inner London eight-piece, whose name means ‘be strong’ in Urhobo.

Led by trumpeter Sheila Maurice-Grey, the group play music they love, music they grew up with and music their parents got funky to.

Their sound is inspired by Fela Kuti, Ebo Taylor, Tony Allen and the best of West African music.

As soon as Kokoroko hit the stage, the 900-strong audience was floored by the band’s musical prowess and stage presence. Without doubt they are ones to watch in 2018.
