Kokolo Afrobeat Orchestra
Kokolo Afrobeat Orchestra “Wildly enjoyable……the sound of Fela Kuti meeting the Clash at a late 70’s all night mash up in Spanish Harlem” (NY TIMES). In just a few years, KOKOLO's infectious blend of social commentary, charisma and musical appeal has taken them from the tangled streets of their native New York to the world's stage (Glastonbury Festival, Montreal Jazz Fest, London Jazz Cafe) firmly establishing them as premier innovators in rhythm-based music, and drawing scores of afro-beat lovers, funk heads, salsa aficionados, dance club punters and jazz connoisseurs along the way. Wicked Afrobeat served with salsa heat, funk moves and punk chutzpah.
