Seven-piece musical sensation Coco Jafro's electrified and funky global rhythms combine the schools of funk, soul, jazz and Afrobeat. The band's sound flows from a foundation of deep-set jazz grooves and North African Moroccan rhythms. Coco Jafro's recent accolades include a 2016 nomination for Urban Artist Of The Year, CBC Searchlight regional finalist ranking, and a Van Isle Music Award nomination for Best Live Act. With three albums under their belt, Coco Jafro shows no signs of slowing down. The band recently returned to the studio where they are recording their fourth album. Coco Jafro's musicians include Karina Morin on vocals, Karl Oystensen on keyboards, Jean Se LeDoujet on bass, Chris Couto on drums, Sangito Bigolow on percussion, and Dominic Conway on tenor sax.
