New Orleans specialist DJ Lil' Koko cut her teeth with a three year residency at iconic jazz club Ronnie Scott's- DJing and hosting explosive monthly Mardi Gras inspired nights. Spinning rare New Orleans jazz, RnB, funk and brass with a few detours into the sweaty Bayous of Louisiana, she tours festivals in Europe and beyond hosting wild Mardi Gras parties and bringing the rich musical history of New Orleans to the masses. Heavily influenced by Tennessee Williams and literature from the Deep South, Lil' Koko spent an extended time in New Orleans (and Cuba) digging through vaults of New Orleans record shops for buried vinyl treasures, befriending musicians and interviewing cultural icons. Returning each year since, she lives and breathes the culture of this mythical city, with a collection of hot vinyl to match.
Featured as guest DJ on Giles Peterson's Worldwide FM, Lil' Koko was interviewed by the legendary BBC6 Music host and played a blistering set on his show. She can regularly be heard on Resonance FM and collaborated with Jazz FM.
Each month Lil’ Koko assembles a band of the finest New Orleans inspired musicians for three special sets. Expect fiery brass, honky-tonk blues, jazz and low-down funk, all with a distinct New Orleans flavour. Let the good times roll…
