Following the release of their debut album in March 2014, London-based band Ibibio Sound Machine kick off a full UK tour tonight
Ibibio Sound Machine are an eight-piece band from London, fronted by Nigerian singer Eno Williams. Their self-titled debut was released on March 17 by Soundway Records. Drawing on Williams’ Nigerian heritage, the album combines traditional folk tales in Ibibio language from south-east Nigeria with elements of West African Afrobeat and highlife, retro-electronics and gospel.
Their UK tour will begin today in Manchester, and will conclude in February 2015 in Norwich. Click here for tickets.
