Fronted by British-Nigerian vocalist Eno Williams, Ibibio Sound Machine present a mellifluous mash-up of West African highlife, disco, post-punk and psychedelic electro soul. Hear the folk stories of Williams’ childhood set to a musical backdrop that “veers intriguingly between the contemporary and echoes of the ’70s and ’80s” (The Guardian). “Sounds as if Grace Jones and James Murphy are playing Ghanaian highlife for their lives,” reckons NME.
Bodywork DJs & Hi Life Hi Fi provide a vinyl-only set inspired by Ibibio’s sound as the perfect accompaniment to the main event.
