KOKOKO! are a group formed in Kinshasa, DRC - comprising local musicians, artists, dancers and inventors alongside producer Débruit. The band introduced themselves with the video ‘We are KOKOKO!’ which highlighted the explosive new alternative scene in Kinshasa and was covered by TIME Magazine, i-D and more. The film was also featured at TEDGlobal. This was followed with EPs Tokoliana, Tongos’a - and Liboso, their debut for Transgressive (Foals, Flume, Sophie, Songhoy Blues) and single Malembe.
STAFF COMMENTSBarry says:
Treading a fine line between dance music and the more acoustic percussive nature of afrobeat, Kokoko! are just as comfortable being played at home or to a packed dancefloor in a basement somewhere. A masterclass in electronic fusion.
