Whether you are a classical connoisseur or think 'classical music is not for me' there is surely something for everyone in the 8 week stretch of concerts.

Con una cautivadora mezcla de Afrobeat y jazz, este concierto fue sin duda una noche memorable en los BBC Proms. Los ocho integrantes de KOKOROKO traen a escena la crítica social y política contemporánea a través de los ritmos africanos del occidente de África presentes en el barrio londinense de Soho durante los años cuarenta. Como ellos mencionan: “Queríamos que la música sonara en bruto, como salir una noche y escuchar la música saliendo a través de las bocinas o la energía de las personas bailando en las fiestas de Afrobeat: es el tipo de música que hemos visto encender las pistas de baile.”

With their captivating mix of Afrobeat and jazz, this promises to be a memorable night at the BBC Proms. The eight members of KOKOROKO bring a contemporary social and political commentary to the West African Rhythms heard in the 1940s London's Soho area. As they say: “We wanted the music to sound rough, like going out and hearing music pushed through speakers or the energy of people dancing at Afrobeat parties: its music we’ve seen work on dance floors.” Presented live from the Royal Albert Hall by Georgia Mann.
