KOKOROKO are a young, London based Afrobeat 8-Piece band led by trumpeter
Sheila Maurice-Grey. We play music we love, we grew up with and our parents got funky to. Inspired by Fela Kuti, Ebo Taylor, Tony Allen and the great sounds that come out of West Africa, we put on a performance to honour the masters that taught us.
We specialise in a soul shaking, horn fueled sound with West African roots and Inner London hues.
Trumpet - Sheila Maurice-Grey (Bandleader)
Saxophone - Cassie Kinoshi
Trombone - Richie SeivWright
Bass - Mutale Chashi
Guitar - Oscar Jerome
Keyboards - Yohan Kebede
Percussion - Onome Ighamre
Drums - Ayo Salawu
+ some serious friends!
"As soon as KOKOROKO hit the stage, the 900-strong audience was flawed by the band's musical prowess and stage presence. The band's beautiful soulful and spiritual compositions both healed the soul and got bodies moving! Without doubt they are ones to watch in 2018"
Nick Lewis, Operations Manager, Ronnie Scott's
"The V&A was delighted that KOKOROKO played a part in REVEAL festival, a week-long series of art and design commissions, fashion shows, and performances to celebrate our new Exhibition Road Quarter opening; the V&A's largest architectural intervention in over 100 years. Their music was lively, original, and multi-faceted, contributing to a diverse cultural exchange that makes London's arts, culture and music scenes one of the best in the world. KOKOROKO performed at the press view and the public opening -- a special V&A Friday Late in collaboration with Boiler Room -- which drew in over 6,000 visitors to the Museum that evening."
