The Lemon Tree
What better way to bring the curtain down on our 2019 festival with a late night party with Ibibio Sounds Machine! The afro-funk pioneers will get the Lemon Tree moving with their high energy, charismatic performance to ensure we’re talking about the this True North for years to come!
Long lauded for their jubilant, explosive live shows, Ibibio Sound Machine fully capture that energy and communication on Doko Mien, the follow-up to their Merge debut Uyai . In a glowing piece in the New York Times, those songs were praised for following “in the tradition of much African music, [making] themselves the conscience of a community.” By pulsing the mystic shapes of Eno Williams’ lines through further inventive, glittering collages of genre, Ibibio Sound Machine crack apart the horizon separating cultures, between nature and technology, between joy and pain, between tradition and future.
Make a weekend of it!
