Coco Jafro is a hard hitting force to be reckoned with, unifying the masses with their electrified, funky global rhythms. They bring together the schools of Funk, Soul, Jazz and Afro-beat providing a unique sound that flows from a foundation of deep set grooves. Moroccan born, lead guitarist Amine Said’s musical roots provide an exclusive sound with the proven power to instantly synchronize your soul forcing the crowd to bend and sway.
In 2016 Coco Jafro added a BreakOut West nomination for Urban Artist Of The Year and CBC Searchlight regional finalist ranking to their arsenal; alongside a Van Isle Music Award nomination for 'Best Live Act', numerous festival performances, North African tour and 3 EPs. With their unique brand of «Vintage Funk & 21st Century Urban Cool» (World Beat Canada), the incredibly passionate and dedicated Coco Jafro return to the studio inspired and eager to lay down their anticipated World infused 4th album; set to be released early 2017.
Their international perspective comes naturally by way of band mates who were born in exotic locales including Morocco, France, Mozambique, Quebec and British Columbia's own «City of Rainbows», Prince Rupert. Truly World Music!!!
