Kokolo at the Hot House

Kokolo at the Hot House by Paula PixHey folks, time for a new post today. If you remember the Fanga post, I was talking about a second afrobeat album. Well the time has come to that.

Kokolo Afrobeat Orchestra is an 8 piece orchestra from New York. Their debut from 2004 had the fabulous opener “Donkey” which had made me hunt the album back then and I’ve been waiting for another album to appear since. Here’s two great tracks from the album Love International which was released on Freestyle Records. Love International is a storming piece of Afro-Caribbean beat. My first selection “Congo Bongo” is a percussive Spanish shaker which forces me to sing along with faux Spanish and the second one is inspired by Barack Obama, I presume. I would vote for a black president had there been one a candidate in Turkey as well, so don’t you lose your chance to do so fellow Americans. 😉

Order Kokolo – Love International from Dusty Groove or MP3s from Straight No Chaser
