LISTEN — Ibibio Sound Machine ‘Uyai’

February 24th, 2017

“Eno Williams, the lead singer and spiritual force behind Ibibio Sound Machine, was born in London, but she relocated to her mother’s native Nigeria as a girl. It’s a move that, years, later, would make a profound impact on musical career. In 2014, Ibibio Sound Machine’s eponymous debut album skillfully combined London electronic club music with Nigerian funk and pop, making for a compelling, ear-popping experience. The band’s follow-up album, Uyai, strengthens and deepens that cross-cultural alchemy.”
