Gateshead International Jazz Festival 2018 Presents

Double Bill: Kokoroko and Skeltr

Booking Information

Venue: Sage Two

Tickets: £12.50


KOKOROKO (meaning ‘be strong’ in Urhobo) area collective of musicians brought together by a love for Afrobeat. They specialise in a soul shaking, horn fuelled sound with West African roots and Inner London hues.

Skeltr are an electrifying new duo in which Sam Healey’s roaring sax lines soar above Craig Hanson’s drum patterns, electronic soundscapes and samples, manipulated live in the moment: a striking, expansive sound with a buzzing energy at its core.
