KOKOROKO

— SWX Bristol
Bristol Beacon presents KOKOROKO at SWX, Bristol
price: See event details

Information:

Taking their name from an Orobo word meaning to ‘be strong’, London’s afrobeat collective KOKOROKO more than sonically live up to their name.

Featuring a seismic horn section, guitar, keys, drums and percussion, plus the enchanting vocals of frontwomen Sheila, Cassie and Richie, the band have received critical acclaim from BBC 6 Music, 1Xtra, Afropunk, Clash & NPR as well as clocking up over 40m views on YouTube.

KOKOROKO are a leading force of the London jazz community, while also crafting out their own original sound that The Guardian says is

“aperfect blend of West African rhythms and improvisatory flair.”

KOKOROKO return to Bristol in 2021 following their sold out show at the Trinity Centre last year with the brilliant new single ‘Baba Ayoola’ released on Brownswood Recordings.

This is a standing show at SWX Bristol.

Plus Support TBC

Age: 14+ (Under 16 to be accompanied by Adults)

This is a standing Bristol Beacon Presents show at SWX, 15 Nelson St, Bristol BS1 2JY
