This is a killer dance-floor track for your ultimate PARTAYYYY suggested by Thy San ! We can assure you you’ll be easily dragged into a few moves while you listen to “Let’s Dance (Yak Inek Unek) by Ibibio Sound Machine. Hailing from London in the United Kingdom, Nigerian Front-woman and singer Eno Williams manages to boil up a clash of African and electronic elements that transpires West-African funk & disco with a hint of modern post-punk & electro. It’s amazing ! I’m giggling already, sharing it all over the shop !
Fun Fact : they also made their live debut in Rennes at the Transmusicales, and apparently (I wasn’t in attendance unfortunately) the band being “a force of nature on stage”…
The full lineup of the band consists of 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).
