Zilla Nights: Feat. KOKOROKO + DJ Blondezilla

KOKOROKO are a young Afrobeat Collective. They specialise in a soul shaking, horn fueled sound with West African roots and inner London hues. “Kokoroko” (meaning 'be strong' in Urhobo) is a collective of some of London’s most talented young musicians brought together by a love for Afrobeat. Inspired by Fela Kuti, Ebo Taylor, Tony Allen and the great sounds that have come out of West Africa, they put on a performance to honour the masters that taught them. Most of them are London Jazz school kids who met playing in South London. After noticing a void in people like them playing Afrobeat, the mighty KOKOROKO - with an all female horn section and proper London fire - was born.
