Akata Kolo Orchestra, afrobeat group

Mar 28, 2024 | Alumni

The Akata Kolo Orchestra or AKO has existed since 2021 on the initiative of nine musicians from the Conservatoire départemental de Gennevilliers.

Each coming from different musical horizons, their appetite for groove and their thirst for punch unite them around the festive, rhythmic, danceable music that is Afrobeat.

Comprising a thundering brass section, a tireless rhythm section and a singer, the A.K.O collective is ready to make its audience sweat and move until the end of the night.

So don’t hesitate any longer. With your fingers in the socket, follow the A.K.O current as it electrifies you for a high-voltage show!

Their debut EP Akatatown has been available since late 2023: https://songwhip.com/akatakoloorchestra/akatatown

With saxophonist Édouard Jacquot, graduate of the Class of 2021 Etienne Mbappé.
