Ibibio Sound Machine

We’ve contacted Eno Williams, the Nigerian leader of international group Ibibio Sound Machine, asking her to shortly introduce the band. Click to read her reply and listen to their new energetic single “Let’s Dance”.

“Ibibio Sound Machine is an 8-piece collective of musicians from very different backgrounds that came together in London,” “Our music is Afrocentric with electronic funk and disco influences and lyrics in Ibibio, my mother’s native Nigerian language”.

“Let’s Dance (Yak Inek Unek) is a story of a girl who is being deprived of her rite of passage dance by the village but defies the odds and dances her way with her friends regardless of her past. It’s about the pure joy and freedom of dance.”
