Sense of Place: London – Ibibio Sound Machine joins host Talia Schlanger

World Cafe’s Sense of Place series in London continues with the vibrant and funky band, Ibibio Sound Machine. Lead singer Eno Williams was born in England, but grew up in Nigeria, where her family spoke Ibibio. Thanks in part to her grandmother, Eno eventually realized that the rhythms and melody inherent in the language were perfect for songwriting – We’ll hear about that today. And Ibibio Sound Machine perform songs from their debut album, Doko Mien, live. On the next World Cafe with host Talia Schlanger.
