Grupo Lokito’s latest album, Bomoko

Grupo Lokito’s latest album, Bomoko, is available on Bandcamp as vinyl or MP3.

Bomoko, Grupo Lokito’s latest album, is a unique collection of six original music tracks, blending the vibrant sounds of Congo and Latin America. In Lingala, the lingua franca of DCR, ‘bomoko’ means togetherness and that resonates throughout the album.

“…a highly accomplished album that gives a great indication of Grupo Lokito’s joyous live performance.”

 Four-star Songlines review.

The band have spent 18 years crafting their blend of Congolese and Cuban music. From the outset, they were determined to play both styles with an authentic touch, and this album is an exemplary showcase of their signature sound and compositional finesse.

The album’s lush sound is thanks to the production skills of producer Stereo Mike Exarchos and superb mastering and cutting by The Carvery. The vinyl is made extra special by the stunning cover artwork of artist Alexis Plasencia from Matanzas, Cuba.

“(a)magnificent, sophomore album – and debut vinyl foray. Good things come to those who wait … Now, enjoy!”
