Ibibio Sound Machine

Thursday, August 3, 8:00 p.m. (Doors and DJ set at 6:30 p.m.)

About the Program

Fronted by London-born Nigerian singer Eno Williams, Ibibio Sound Machine effortlessly mixes African and electronic elements inspired in equal measure by the golden era of West African funk, disco, modern post-punk, and electro. Weird and wonderful folk stories, recounted to Eno by her family in the Ibibio language, form the fabric of the band’s unique musical tapestry.

Arrive early to listen to a DJ set by dublab’s Jasmin Blasco!
