Bio

KOKO mostly play blend of Afro beats and Western music ‘Afro Fusion’, Jazz Music and a blend of Kenyan Benga rhythm, with some modern harmony in Luo, Swahili, Sheng’, English, Maasai, Kikuyu and mixes various Kenyan indigenous dialects to pass the message across Kenya, east Africa communities and the world at large. KOKO is a Luo (a local Kenyan dialect) word meaning “Noise”. When we were growing up in Nairobi ghetto, many youth thought that African music sounded like Noise and that they would not want to be associated with it. It is against this background that Koko Members started embracing exposing African cultural music, dances and instruments. Koko incorporate youth issues, language, and Dance style as away conserving African culture in this dynamic moment. We also acknowledge that arranged noise has been used positively to champion for the rights of the people and as voice for the voiceless.
