AfuriKo - a Japanese portmanteau word combining "Afurika" (アフリカ) and the suffix "Ko" (子) which means "child" - is an African infused jazz duo comprised of percussionist Akiko Horii and pianist/keyboardist Jim Funnell.

Propelled into existence when Jim & Akiko’s paths crossed in Paris as a result of following a shared, irrepressible call to Africa, its culture, and its Diaspora, AfuriKo began experimenting in 2010. A playful blending of tones and rhythms came to life, and a unique dialogue between the ancestral stories of the djembe and the modern voice of digital pianos and synthesizers was quickly instigated. In 2017, the duo relocated to Queens, New York, to let the energy that emanates from the most ethnically diverse part of the world nourish their creative process on a daily basis.
