LONDON, United Kingdom - A highly anticipated sophomore album from Ibibio Sound Machine dropped last Friday. Led by Nigerian songstress Eno Williams, Ibibio Sound Machine embraces an electrifying blend of African rhythms from the West African funk and disco tradition and Western post-punk electronic elements; in fact, one might call it Afro-Electro. As lead vocalist, Williams drives the aesthetic appreciation of the band and consistently impresses with her dramatic wax print performance pieces. With a slew of appearances scheduled this month in the United Kingdom, don't miss a chance to witness their latest project UYAI (and all of Williams' glorious ensembles) for serious sensory overload.
