Amoeba Review

03/01/2017

Ibibio Sound Machine is the project of London-born, Nigeria-raised Eno Williams; Uyai is the incredible follow-up to the eight-piece band’s 2014 debut. Blending Afrobeat, high life, electronic, funk, synth-pop, and Hi-NRG (really, the list could go on and on), Ibibio Sound Machine have created one of the most ebullient, life-affirming, impressive albums of the year. Sung in the Nigerian Ibibio language, the album is inspiring and upbeat while not shying away from exploring graver subjects. (Opener “Give Me a Reason” tells the story of the 276 Nigerian girls tragically kidnapped by Boko Haram in 2014.) Uyai is an album to celebrate.
