London. Ibibio Sound Machine is the bold, unapologetic project of London-born Nigerian singer Eno Williams. The only thing more outrageous than her dress is that bass!! The band takes its name from Eno's ethnic group and its language, Ibibo, which was the language of the folk stories that Eno's mother told to her as a child. Those stories are an important creative influence on Ibibo Sound Machine's music.
