KOKOKO! are a group formed in Kinshasa, DRC, comprising local musicians, artists, dancers and inventors alongside producer Débruit.


The band introduced themselves with the video ‘We are KOKOKO!’, which highlighted the explosive new alternative scene in Kinshasa and was covered by Time Magazine, i-D and more. The film was also featured at TEDGlobal.


This was followed with EPs ‘Tokoliana’, ‘Tongos’a’ and ‘Liboso’, their debut for Transgressive (Foals, Flume, Sophie, Songhoy Blues) plus single ‘Malembe’.


The releases were all critically acclaimed, picking up support from the likes of Pitchfork, Dazed, Nowness, Afropunk, Les Inrocks, It’s Nice That, DJ Mag, FACT and more. The group also performed a special live session for Resident Advisor and recently completed an in-depth feature with Red Bull.


The group have now finished a world tour with multiple sold out dates and headline performances in New York, London and Paris; they were one of the most talked about new artists at this year’s SXSW.


Next they will be performing at festivals throughout the summer, including All Points East, Bluedot, Green Man, End Of The Road and more, with a headline show at London’s Fabric in November.


LP pressed on red coloured vinyl with digital download code.
