Interview \\ Two minutes with afrobeat collective KOKOROKO
When we ran a season of live shows in London in late 2016, we knew we had to invite KOKOROKO to launch it. We take two minutes with percussionist Onome Edgeworth to talk about influences and London’s relationship with afrobeat.

\\ How is Afrobeat represented in the UK, and what challenges or opportunities does it open for you guys?
