An all-star band featuring leading lights from the London jazz community.

Powered by a seismic horn section (Maurice Grey, saxophonist Cassie Kinoshi, trombonist Richie Seivwright), guitar (Oscar Jerome), keys (Yohan Kebede), drums (Ayo Salawu) and percussion (Onome Edgeworth); Kokoroko are on a mission to fashion new languages using the medium of afrobeat.

Discussing the band’s sound Onome Edgeworth says “we didn’t want it to sound too clean… we wanted it to sound rough, like going out and hearing music pushed through speakers or the energy of people dancing at afrobeat parties: its music we’ve seen work on dancefloors”

Their self-titled debut EP was released on Brownswood in 2019 to critical acclaim and the band have been filling dancefloors from Brighton to Manchester with their stunning live show, taking their London afrobeat sound across the country
