Kokoko! 'Tongos'a' - Oui Love - New French Music

Kokoko! ‘Tongos’a’


Hailing from Kinshasa, five-piece Kokoko! are set to release their debut album later in the year, but in the meantime they have just released a new video for their track ‘Tongos’a‘ from their new EP of the same name.

Born of a collaboration between the Congolese musicians and French producer Débruit, Kokoko!’s music, which they call “tekno kintueni”, is arguably the best representation of the contemporary Congo capital’s soundscape. Inherently Central African, intrinsically electronic, ingeniously hand-crafted – they make their own instruments out of scrap and found objects – and powerfully rhythmic.
