Kokoroko | Ebo Taylor Songbook | Church Of Sound
St James the Great, London
Friday, 25 Jan 2019 – Saturday, 26 Jan 2019
19:30 – 00:00
For our first show of the year, we are delighted to welcome the wonderful Kokoroko into the round.
The band will be taking us through two sets, the first covering material spanning Ebo Taylor's output & the second digging into Kokoroko’s own original compositions.
KOKOROKO channel the greats of West Africa through a jazz-rooted approach, building on the foundations laid by Fela Kuti, Tony Allen and Ebo Taylor; they lace interrelated influences together into a soul shaking, horn fueled sound. They draw from the music they grew up with, the echoes of Afrobeat and highlife heard in melodies, drum patterns and harmonised vocals.
They have just announced the release of a new EP on Brownswood and we're delighted to welcome them in the round for what is set to be an exquiste gig!
