KOKOROKO

AFROBEAT | HIGHLIFE | LONDON TOWN

 

 

|About|

 

KOKOROKO are a young, London based Afrobeat 8-Piece band led by trumpeter
Sheila Maurice-Grey. 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 come out of West Africa, we put on a performance to honour the master that taught us.

Most of us are London Jazz school kids who met playing in 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.
