KOKOKO!

KOKOKO!

If you thought Nana Benz Du Togo's insole pipe organ is neat, just wait until you see KOKOKO! perform.

Get ready to immerse yourself in the electrifying beats of KOKOKO! at this year's festival. Hailing from Kinshasa, the capital of the Democratic Republic of Congo, KOKOKO! is a ground-breaking collective that merges traditional African rhythms with DIY electronic instruments crafted from recycled materials. Their music is a vibrant fusion of pulsating drums, gritty synths, and infectious energy, creating a sonic experience that transcends borders.

KOKOKO!'s live performances are legendary for their high-energy, genre-defying sound that seamlessly blends electronic, punk, and Afrobeat influences. When we saw them recently the tent was bouncing. With their distinctive homemade instruments and infectious stage presence, KOKOKO! promises to deliver a dynamic and unforgettable set that will have festival-goers dancing and celebrating the spirit of innovation. Don't miss the opportunity to witness this unique musical force that is pushing the boundaries of creativity and redefining the global soundstage.

Anyway, I'm off to build a drumkit out of buckets with Fray Bentos pie tin cymbals. Inspiring stuff.
