Ibibio Sound Machine
Mixing West-African funky seventies grooves with highlife guitar licks and deep synth electronica ibibio create a soulful gumbo that feels instantly familiar and yet also new and fresh. bubbling percussion, slinky bass lines, tight brass punctuation and wailing electronics produce full-fat-funk which propels you to your feet. Fronted by Nigerian Eno Williams, whose powerful voice and stage presence evoke Grace Jones. ibibio have conquered festival stages from Glastonbury to wilderness with their steamy African soul-funk, taking in “Later With Jools Holland” along the way.
