The best kept secret in music


"Rave Hot Picks"

"We takes our hats off to local supergroup Kooii, what a hook, get along and see these cats soon." - Rave Magazine

"Beads On A String album review"

"…combines jazzy urban rhythms with funky reggae beats and resonant vocals to lull a listener into trance-like splendour. Kooii enters the musical world with a debut album that is every bit transitional as it is colourful carrying a distinct yet indefinable approach that'll make you feel blissfully relaxed and at ease. If music is supposed to ease stress, this definitely does the trick."

- Scene Magazine July 2005

Feeling a bit camera shy


Kooii (pronounced 'coo-wee') are a seven-piece Brisbane based collective who create and play music inspired by a passion for improvisation and a dedication for stimulating harmonies, Latin, dub and reggae grooves.

Following on from recent national airplay and acclaimed live performances along the east coast, Kooii have reproduced their live magic in the studio with their invigorating debut album Beads On a String with producer/engineer Paul Bromley of ARIA-winning George fame.
