London has been a hotbed of musical diversity, and KOKOROKO embody the musical innovation which London’s diverse culture has helped create. Infusing the energy of West African afrobeats and comptemporary jazz, KOKOROKO, have helped usher a cross-cultural musical sound which has seen the tour across Europe.
Following the release of their single Carry Me Home’ earlier this year, they have just released the new single Baba Ayoola, through Giles Peterson’s Brownswood recordings.
The song is dedicated to the grandfather of the band’s saxophonist, Cassie Kinoshi, and it’s exactly the kind of bright, rolling jam that we need going into the end of 2020.
