Kid Creole And My Coconuts Is a delightful, dance able and very personal documentary memoir chronicling Swiss – born artist/choreographer/designer Adriana Kaegi’s adventures as Mama Coconut — co-founder of the 1980s multicultural tropical funk machine called Kid Creole and the Coconuts and wife to August Darnell the mercurial man behind the glamorous combo. From jamming in scrappy downtown New York underground dives to performing for American Presidents and Lady Di, Kid Creole and the Coconuts’ dazzling success charted the arc of a decade — and the rise, fall and rise again of the band the New Musical Express (among others) called The Best Live Band in the world. At the center of it all was the stylish, multi-talented Kaegi with an early video camera, “making reality TV before it even existed!” as she laughs. With a rare intimacy, she documents the band’s extraordinary experiences, both global and internal. Propelled by the compulsive rhythms of the Kid Creole and the Coconuts extravaganza, this documentary will leave you singing – “You can take anything, but don’t take my Coconuts”!
