Welcome to the new Kofi Baker website, THE place to visit to find out and follow one of the best drummers on the music scene today.
Kofi has impeccable credentials, being firstly the son of iconic Cream/Blind Faith etc jazz/rock rock drummer Ginger Baker and secondly having forged his own long and distinguished career working with some of our greatest musicians around the Globe; Tom Jones, Jack Bruce, Steve Marriott, Uli Jon Roth and many more. He has also toured very successfully with Jack Bruce’s son Malcolm Bruce and guest guitarists; where their critically acclaimed musicianship and on stage banter has formed an original and exciting interpretation of their father’s musical legend.
Kofi now tours with his own tribute to the music of the Cream era, with his ‘Cream Experience’ featuring other top musicians. Kofi also guests with other great bands, attends drum shows and clinics and teaches students when time permits.
Check out his interviews and his performances on youtube, plus his famous duet with his dad many years ago in Colorado.
Kofi is mentioned in the Steve Marriot autobiography All too Beautiful and Steve had telephoned Kofi the night before his tragic death in 1991 to ask Kofi to join his new band.
