“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.”
