Today on ¡Nueva Nova New! on Ecléctico you're listening to Kokoroko, an ensemble of jazz and funk musicians based in London. The group's music is driven by their West African roots, with many of the songs on this album, their debut, layered with an Afrobeat groove. Today's song is funky, buoyant, and powerful—an echo of their name, Kokoroko, which, as you'll read in today's "Go deeper" link below, "actually means 'be strong' in the Nigerian Urhobo language."
"War Dance" by Kokoroko (2022)
