A VIDEO INTERVIEW WITH MICHAEL COGGINS
Finding his niche initially in the World Music scene, Coggins went on to perform regularly with most of Sydney’s African artists, including Afro Moses (Ghana), Chris Gudu (Zimbabwe), Keyim Ba (Guinea) and Dereb Desalegn (Ethiopia), Yasmin & Fanous (Sudan), and Chosani Afrique (Senegal).
Coggins is featured on more than ten albums and has regularly toured Australia with Chris Gudu and Afro Pamoja, both as a support act for visiting international artists Hugh Masekela and Jah Prayzah, and in their own right as a headline act.
Since 2014, Coggins has performed more than 100 shows with award-winning jazz/rock group The Subterraneans, and more than 50 shows with Sonic Mayhem Orchestra.
In 2017, with the support of the Australia Council, Coggins toured the Northern Territory with Chosani Afrique, performing in Darwin, Katherine, Tennant Creek, Alice Springs, and Melbourne.
