    • Kokoroko – Carry Me Home
    • 1. Baba Ayoola
    • 2. Carry Me Home

    The elevating vocal harmonies of the band's front women, Sheila, Cassie and Richie; 'Baba Ayoola' unfolds with delicate rolling drums perfectly melding with the percussive heartbeat to which the keys glide over seamlessly. Enchanting guitar riffs glisten through a melodic baseline, enhanced with bursts of the powerful brass section coalesced with gospel-like harmonies surging towards an exhilarating crescendo. Baba Ayoola was written as a tribute to the grandfather of the band’s alto saxophonist Cassie Kinoshi and is “an invitation to celebrate life”
