This is one of the first Congolese bands I’ve heard since the demise of the legendary Franco Luambo of (TP)OK Jazz fame.  KOKOKO! are one of Central Africa’s most exciting bands, blending elements of funk, post-punk, blues and electro in a wild mix that I can’t imagine any other group, no matter their location, could pull off as well as these guys.
