Kotoko Brass

Performed in Sofar Boston

Inspired by the royal court rhythms of Ghana, Kotoko Brass fuses the lively drum music of West Africa with the celebratory brass band sound of New Orleans. The drums provide the heart and soul of Kotoko Brass — merging syncopated African percussion rhythms with hard-hitting dance grooves on the American drumset. Keyboard and bass evoke classic African and Caribbean styles of highlife, afrobeat, and reggae, and horns blend traditional sounds of New Orleans with the famous West African brass band sound heard from Ghana to Nigeria and Benin. A joyful and energetic synthesis of musical cultures from around the world, Kotoko Brass features musicians from Ghana, Antigua, Japan, and the United States.
