Fronted by British Nigerian vocalist Eno Williams, Ibibio Sound Machine combine elements of West African highlife, disco, post-punk & psychedelic electro soul.  Folk stories, recounted to Eno by her family as a child in her mother's Ibibio language form the lyrical fabric of the album. A large dose of electronic elements and an approach influenced by London as much as by West Africa, give the vocals and guitar lines space to breath without being overwhelmed. From the banging sub-bass of 'Lets Dance' to the spiritual, gospel-tinged notes of the album's opening track 'Voice of the Bird', the band have turned in a dynamic and, at times, beautiful take on modern afro-soul music.
