Born in Mexico and former resident of London and Berlin, globetrotter Coco Maria – born Ana Lucia – grew up surrounded by music at home, but quickly realised that as much as she loved hearing it herself, she loved sharing it even more.

Starting with CDs and then collecting wax when she moved to the English capital, she has used that love and knowledge of high vibration music to discover Afro-Latino rhythms from South & Central America, Brazil, the Caribbean and beyond. Her selection is a mixture of joyful and obscure gems ranging from samba, charanga, cumbia alongside an assortment of rarities from sunnier, far-off places. Jazz, soul or boogie are also part of Coco’s DNA and never left aside in her selections.

This passion and knowledge of Brazilian, South & Central American music led Coco Maria to start her own weekly radio show ‘Club Coco’ on Gilles Peterson’s London-based online radio, Worldwide FM. where she spreads the love for these sounds every Wednesday. In 2021, she stepped into the game of compilation curating with ‘Club Coco‘ on the Swiss label Bongo Joe, which perfectly sums up the sunny high energy of what her concept represents, and also includes her debut as producer and singer.

Alongside her weekly radio show, mixes and DJ sets at globally-loved venues & festivals, Coco Maria is also focusing on curating festival stages with her Club Coco musical vision & world vision embracing both the live & dj world.
