    KOKOROKO

    Afro-Beat

    KOKOROKO are a young, London based Afrobeat 8-Piece band led by trumpeter Sheila Maurice-Grey. We play music we love, we grew up with and our parents got funky to. Inspired by Fela Kuti, Ebo Taylor, Tony Allen and the great sounds that come out of West Africa, we put on a performance to honour the master that taught us.

    Most of us are London Jazz school kids who met playing in London. We noticed a void in people like us playing Afrobeat and KOKOROKO – with proper London fire – was born.

    Trumpet - Sheila Maurice-Grey (Bandleader)
    Saxophone - Cassie Kinoshi
    Trombone - Richie SeivWright
    Bass - Mutale Chashi
    Guitar - Oscar Jerome

    Keyboards - Yohan Kebede
    Percussion - Onome Ighamre

    Drums - Eddie Hicks / Ayo Salawu
    + some serious friends!

    “As soon as KOKOROKO hit the stage, the 900-strong audience was flawed by the band’s musical prowess and stage presence. The band’s beautiful soulful and spiritual compositions both healed the soul and got bodies moving! Without doubt they are ones to watch in 2018” (Nick Lewis, Operations Manager, Ronnie Scott’s)

    “The V&A was delighted that KOKOROKO played a part in REVEAL festival, a week-long series of art and design commissions, fashion shows, and performances to celebrate our new Exhibition Road Quarter opening; the V&A’s largest architectural intervention in over 100 years. Their music was lively, original, and multi-faceted, contributing to a diverse cultural exchange that makes London’s arts, culture and music scenes one of the best in the world. KOKOROKO performed at the press view and the public opening – a special V&A Friday Late in collaboration with Boiler Room – which drew in over 6,000 visitors to the Museum that evening.” (V&A Museum)

Electric Brixton Covid Policy (Please read)

Electric Brixton will proudly reopen on July 23rd at full capacity.

The safety of our music fans, artists and employees will always be our top priority. Let’s all work together to ensure lockdown rules do not come back.

The government has asked us to encourage the use of Covid Passports at Electric Brixton but it is not a legal requirement. We will not be asking you to prove that you have been vaccinated, had Covid in the past or a proof of a negative test. If you feel unwell, please do not attend the venue and put others at risk. We also recommend you test on a regular basis.

Masks
While masks are no longer required, if you wish to wear a mask inside the venue you can.
We will require all masks to be removed upon entering the venue so that ID checks and any security searches can take place. All our employees will be wearing masks.

Temperature Checks
We will continue to temperature check everyone coming into the venue.

Sanitising
Everyone will be required to sanitise their hands upon entering our venue. This helps us keep things safe.
Additional sanitising stations will be located in the toilet areas or by asking any of our employees who will have additional sanitiser behind all service areas and security points.

Venue Cleaning
On top of our enhanced cleaning procedures, we have also implemented Nordic Chem a Antimicrobial spray coating which is a monthly procedure. Nordic Chem coating is a mechanical kill that creates a very thin layer of “nano-spikes” that penetrate the virus/bacteria that comes in contact with the coating and thus killing it.

Social Distancing
The venue will no longer be enforcing social distancing but we understand the venue can get busy so we will be creating additional areas (at the front of the venue) for those who smoke or need some fresh air.

Medic Assistance
Our medic is on duty at all events . If you become unwell during your time with us please head to the medic room located on the ground floor and they will assist you. We also have a substantial quantity of Lateral Flow Tests at the venue so if the medic has any concerns with your well- being they will offer you the opportunity to take a test.

Employees of Venue
Our employees will be asked to take two lateral flow tests a week prior to starting work.

Air Quality
The venue is blessed with extremely affective fresh air ventilations that is circulating at all times around the whole of the venue.

Payments & Cloakroom
We strongly encourage you to use contactless/cards if you can, to limit cash transactions. We will be asking all promoters to provide a card payment facility at the box office so that cash handling is minimal. Our cloakrooms are also now taking card payments so again this will limit cash transactions. Please bring minimal items so that we can space out customers items as much as possible.

We look forward to seeing you all back at Electric Brixton.
