The music of KOFFIE can be summarised as a mixture of Afrobeat, jazz and 1970s funk. "KOFFIE came about after Fela Kuti opened our ears", says drummer Otto van der Wotto. Fela's full sound and wonderful grooves were the kick for these boys to dive into Afrobeat.
After the release of first single"Kyrie Ayé", the debut album was released 8 March. It features guest singer Nassan Silva Lopes. The artwork is made by Clarinde Wesselink.
