About this concert

Treasured vocal ensemble Coco’s Lunch performs songs from its latest release, Misra Chappu, in a masterful and exuberant feast of sound, rhythm, texture and storytelling. Featuring the award-winning single ‘Other Plans’, the new songs dazzle with lush jazz harmonies, fiery South Indian vocal percussion, and the world-class improvisation and gorgeous songwriting for which the ensemble is renowned. This is music for the heart, set to the pulse of the trademark Coco’s five-part groove – music created with love, an awareness of spirit, and with the intention of bringing healing, light and beauty to the world.

‘Misra Chappu heralds the birthing of eight bold new pieces of exceptional beauty and unparalleled originality, forging an adventurous new direction in contemporary vocal music.’
