The most explosive force in UK Jazz
After selling out their intimate album launch (Your Queen is a Reptile) at Total Refreshment Centre in a matter of hours, Sons of Kemet are returning to the capital for a full-scale show of gritty jazz at KOKO.
The credentials accumulated by the group are astonishing; led by saxophonist, clarinettist and composer Shabaka Hutchings who was awarded the title of 'BBC New Generation Artist', this is a 'supergroup' of sorts, featuring Theon Cross on tuba and both Seb Rochford (Polar Bear, Babyshambles) and Tom Skinner (Melt Yourself Down, Mulatu Astatke) on drums. Together, this eclectic group of musicians come together to weave a musical tapestry of jazz that draws upon Afrobeat, dub, Caribbean soca, and grime, to create a hard-hitting, addictive, and groundbreak sound. Live shows from this band are becoming the stuff of legends.
At KOKO, Sons of Kemet will unleash their full potential on the lucky crowd. Expect wonderfully guttural brass belches, drum beats that will keep you wanting more, and a frenzy of exhilarating melodies.
"Mesmerising trance music of great power. thrilling" - Independent
"I strongly urge you to see this band' - Gilles Peterson
KOKO's Disability Policy
KOKO is keen to promote equality of opportunity for disabled people and to
take the necessary steps to meet disabled people's needs.
This guide is designed to inform everybody who comes to KOKO what we can
offer customers who may have particular needs.
Bookings & Ticketing
We do not have allocated disabled tickets.
We do not have "disabled area" tickets. Tickets must be bought in the same
way as non disabled people. Once a person has bought a ticket we can provide
them an allocated space in the disabled area. If the event is sold out we
cannot sell extra tickets.
Personal Assistant Ticketing Scheme.
People with accessibility needs may need to have someone with them. We offer
a 2 for 1 Ticket Policy for personal assistants. This arrangement is made
through the venue and not the ticketing agencies.
Aside from this we do not offer a reduced rate ticket price.
The service we offer is of equal quality to both disabled and non disabled
people so a discount is not necessary.
