Ibibio Sound Machine set to release debut album next month

Ibibio Sounds Machine

British-Nigerian 8-piece collective Ibibio Sound Machine are probably making the best party music you’re likely to hear this year. Fronted by London-born Nigerian singer Eno Williams, her mother’s South-Eastern Nigerian Ibibio language gives the name to the band.  Williams’ lyrics are also inspired by folk stories told to her by her family as a child. The Octet’s explosive genre-fusing sound combines elements of West African highlife, disco, funk, post-punk & psychedelic electro soul.

Late February will see the release of Ibibio Sound Machine’s debut full-length album via Soundway Records. Ahead of it, they’ve spiced things up already with their incendiary first single ‘Let’s Dance (Yak Inek Unek). Play it loud!
