Pioneers of Kinshasa's sonic revolution, Kokoko! Have captivated global audiences with their striking sonics and energetic performances since 2017. Their accolades include best live band award by AIF, NPR Tiny Desk and Boiler Room slots, appearances at festivals including All Points East, SXSW, Green Man and Pitchfork Festival, and a placement on the Grand Theft Auto and FIFA soundtracks. Their critically acclaimed debut album Fongola achieved global praise, with DJ Mag labelling it "quite unlike anything else you'll hear", while The Guardian called the group a "commanding new voice". The Congolese city of Kinshasa's after-dark buzz was the inspiration behind their sophomore album, BUTU, which means 'the night' in Lingala, and the experimental record dives deep into the heart of the chaotic place, celebrating the joyful and creative spirit of it's inhabitants. With vocalist Makara Bianko at the helm and production from Xavier Thomas, AKA Débruit, this follow-up to Fongola finds the group channelling a more electronic, upbeat sound. BUTU is a replication of the frenetic feel of that dynamic nightlife - equipment being pushed to it's limit, via saturated and distorted speakers, or the sonic push and pull of sounds after dark.
