Ibibio Sound Machine, England's sensational electronic and African music artists are bringing their signature sounds to the Brighton Music Hall!
Ibibio Sound Machine was formed in London (England) in 2013 by producers Max Grunhard, Leon Brichard, and Benji Bouton. It currently consists of Eno Williams (vocals), Alfred Bannerman (guitar), Anselmo Netto (percussion), Leon (bass and synth), Benji (drums and keyboard), Jose Joyette (drums), Max (alto sax), Tony Hayden (trombone and synth), Scott Baylis (trumpet), and Ben Hadwen (baritone sax). Their musical style is best described as a blend of West African funk, disco (a musical style - originating in the early 1970s as a reaction against both the domination of rock music and the stigmatization of dance music by the counterculture during this period - that remained largely underground until the mid 70s when it began to emerge from America's urban nightlife scene, where it had been curtailed to house parties and makeshift discotheques, and started to go mainstream), post punk (a broad type of rock music that emerged from the punk movement of the 1970s, in which artists departed from the traditional garage rock template of punk to pursue a variety of avant garde sensibilities), and modern electro (a genre of electronic music and early hip hop directly influenced by funk and the Roland TR-808 drum machines). They've released 2 studio albums and 2 singles.
