Ibibio Sounds Machine – Let’s Dance (Yak Inek Unek)

Ibibio_Sound_Machine_Let's_Dance_Soundway_Tumble_Weave_Tumbleweave_BlogIbibio Sounds Machine are the latest signing to Tumbleweave favourites Soundway records. London-born Eno Williams brings her Nigerian heritage to front the project which takes the form of an 8-piece band on stage, and the results are a rare example of new African music being made with some of the passion and character predominantly associated with past eras. Let’s Dance (Yak Inek Unek) is the lead single, and if it is to be taken as an indication of what is to come from the band, we can look forward to an abundance of well articulated power and percussion.

Ibibio Sounds Machine are Eno Williams (vocals), Alfred Bannerman (guitar), Anselmo Netto (percussion), Leon Brichard (bass/synth), Benji Bouton (drums/keyboards), Max Grunhard (alto sax), Tony Hayden (trombone/synth), Scott Baylis (trumpet) & Ben Hadwen (baritone sax).
