Cocos Lovers (pronounced Co-Coss), not Coco’s like the delicious chocolate-y cereal, have an alluring blend of UK new folk, African rhythms and sounds of the US Deep South that make them a truly international melting pot.
Hailing from the small but musically rich town of Deal in Kent, they are a close-knit 7-piece band of family, friends and former au pairs. The rotating line-up consists of an entire Dawsons of instruments including mandolin, banjo, acoustic and electric guitars, harmonica, violin, musical saw, flute and a unique blend of drums and percussion.
