Ibibio Sound Machine Live In Concert
Ibibio Sound Machine will perform live at Brooklyn Bowl on Sat, Oct 22 at 8:00pm.
London-based DJ/live music octet Ibibio Sound Machine combine sounds inspired in equal measure by the golden era of West African funk and disco, post-punk, and modern electro. The band was started by producers Max Grunhard, Leon Brichard, and Benji Bouton, all enthusiasts of African grooves from the 1970s and ’80s. The group, fronted by English-Nigerian vocalist Eno Williams, took club culture by storm with their 2014 self-titled debut for Soundway. Supported by a host of influential DJs including Gilles Peterson, the album opened the door to international touring. ISM signed to Merge for 2017’s Uyai, adding elements of post-punk to their genre collision. They followed with 2019’s raucous Doko Mien. 2022’s Electricity juxtaposed mutant Afrobeat, funk, and post-punk sounds with cutting-edge electronica.
