Preview: KOKOKO! @ Archspace (London, 12th & 13th November 2017)  

KOKOKO! Gig Recommendation (2)

They said there will be two “intimate” shows, but when it comes to KOKOKO!’s vibe, there’s nothing intimate or cushy about it. You’ll jump up, dance and move relentlessly to their vibrant Afro-electro groove!

Hailing from Kinshasa, the five-piece collective is one of the biggest up-and-coming names in today’s world beats landscape. Their music, which they call tekno kintueni, is arguably the best representation of the contemporary Congo capital’s soundscape. Inherently Central African, intrinsically electronic, ingeniously hand-crafted and hauntingly rhythmic. You can have plenty of it on the 12th and 13th of November at Archspace in Haggerston.

No doubt it won’t take too long until KOKOKO!’s shows are sold out (as recently happened to their Brussels gig), so don’t miss your chance to experience the latest manifestation of the electrifying Afro-electro music scene.
