Burning with intoxicating life force CocoSol is a distinct International Songstress & multi-instrumentalist. Her music is a world funk symphony of sound with catchy guitar licks, sultry voices, fiery rhythms and longing melodies.
In Montreal, CocoSol grew up in a large family of nine, Brady Bunch style. While a teenager, she took the stage as a root dancer and singer percussionist with Ayana & Batanes; two Malian/Cuban premier ensembles and appeared as a recording artist on their release, Batanes.
Since her arrival on the Philadelphia’s art scene in the late nineties, CocoSol has collaborated with multiple artist and companies and formed three distinct musical entities; (“Do it Duo, Les Tourterelles and SOWELU.”)
CocoSol’ Major Achievements
For seven years (1998-2004), CocoSol qualified as the Philadelphia Classical Symphony’s Songstress for their biannual Family Concert Series (Karl Midleman director). It is during this time that she formed “Do it Duo” with Jana Kana. The duo provided hundreds of interactive concerts for children and played on major stages in Philadelphia. You could also find her holding the music chair regularly with the Philadelphia Playback Theater Co. The improvisational theater style suits her natural spontaneity as she flows in response to the impromptu acting.
During this period, she was also an accompanist on keyboard playing Lara and Tanbura for Ustad Shafaatullah Khan, a world-renowned Classical Indian Music Sitarist and Tablaist. Their outstanding performances spread throughout the east coast and London.
In 2002, as CocoSol’s wind shifted to hip-hop and soul fusion, she met Owen “Fiidla” Brown, known in the music industry as a “vocal guru.” He assisted Alicia Keys, Teddy Pendergrass, Mario, Jill Scott and Lil Kim, to name a few. While training for two years with Owen Brown, she carried the rhythm guitar in “Chocolate Wireworks”; an urban soul orchestra of 13 members founded by Mr. Brown. The band plays around the Philly/NYC circuit. She also collaborated on their first release CD “The State of Things” on rhythm guitar, tanbura and vocals.
Later in 2002, she began a French acoustic duo “Les Tourterelles” with Christiana Gallagher from Paris. For four years “Les Tourterelles” enchantment created a remarkable wave among the Universities and Colleges cultural programs and radio shows. Twice they were live guests at the famous Jill Pasternak’s Cross Over WRTI radio show. The duo’s final electrified concert was successfully held at the Philadelphia Academy of Vocal Art Theater in May 2006.
Ever since that last note dropped, CocoSol has been pursuing a solo career and founded Sowelu, a production & publishing company. She was one of three acts featured at the Painted Bride Art Center’ “Fresh Voices of Philly” women in music event. She also played at several Philadelphia Fringe festivals; and has stood out as an entertainer of the Art Museum Parkway Walk for Peace Concert organized by Mothers In Charges and Clear Channel Entertainment. Coco Sol’s band was voted “best summer band” for their performance at LOVE PARK, city hall summer series, and she rocked hundreds of bikers at the Philadelphia Bike Fest.
