KOKOROKO is a London-based, 8-piece Afrobeat band comprising trumpeter and leader Sheila Maurice-Grey, saxophonist Cassie Kinoshi, trombonist Richie Seivwright, guitarist Oscar Jerome, keyboardist Yohan Kebede, bassist Mutale Chashi, percussionist Onome Edgeworth and drummer Ayo Salawu. The band came to be after the members - all part of the London jazz scene - realized the lack of people playing Afrobeat. Through its work, KOKOROKO has come to be known for its complex melodies that faultlessly blend Western-African beats with meditative melodies. This quality in its music shines through in songs like "Abusey Junction."
