Divus Julius presents…KOKOROKO

The Afrobeat eight-piece – led by the inimitable Sheila Maurice-Grey on trumpet – have built a reputation for traversing the intersections between jazz, Afrobeat, high life, and the sounds of London.

Their debut EP dropped via Brownswood in March, making serious waves, and the record’s final track ‘Abusey Junction’ – a masterpiece in meditative, mellow mood, both warm and melancholic – is the jewel in that crown.
