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.
