Since 2013, the Amsterdam septet KOFFIE has been spreading joy with their unique blend of jazz, funk, and Afro-Brazilian rhythms. Founded by guitarist Valentijn Bannier and drummer Abe van der Woude at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam, the groovemachine emerged from their shared love for Fela Kuti and Tony Allen. The natural chemistry and energy on stage led to the self-titled debut album, featuring vocals by Nassan Silva Lopes. Subsequent second and third albums included a guest contribution from Benny Sings, propelling them on tours across Europe and beyond. KOFFIE returns with the refined and energetic fourth album ‘kokon,’ where the band sounds even tighter and funkier, without compromising on innovation.
