      Coco Jafro, a 2016 Western Canada Music Award Nominee for Urban Artist of the Year and 2018 CBC Searchlight Top Ten Finalist, brings together schools of funk, soul, jazz and Afrobeat, creating a unique mashup that transports you to a place that (the band promises) “liberates your soul, evokes your primal spirit and ignites an electricity that lingers within your body.” The seven-member collective has been described as "eclectic and hard-hitting.Think Santana gigging with Fela Kuti garnished with hints of Sade, The Brand New Heavies... even the whole Dap Tone thing! Yes, sounds odd – but it works" [soulandjazzandfunk.com].
