Kokopele is a new Delta Rock band, formed in Israel in 2016 by some of its most prominent musicians (known for working with Balkan Beat Box, Kutiman, Eatliz, Panic Ensamble, Noga Erez, Totemo, Reimzlach, Malox, Jewish Monkeys and more..)
The band creates a hypnotizing balance of Earthy Visceral Native American prayers with fiery bittersweet tunes that seem to come from an Ennio Morricone-like spaghetti western soundtrack.
The result is an upcoming album filled with brooding songs of ascension, redemption, and the futility of man, balancing Swampy blues rock with the dark theatrical shamanic style of the leading vocalist, Lior Darel.
The band Influences are the likes of Son house, Bombino, The black keys, Gonjasufi, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Johnny Cash, Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, and of course Appalachian and Native American music.
