Thanks to the powers and joy of Ibibio Sound Machine, there’s a lightness that cuts through this fog-soaked winter night in Glasgow

The couple of hundred people who are at tonights show are the lucky few. Inside its a different world from the dreary October night of the real world and its a shame more people dont get to see the spectacle.

Here's a band that could not have existed 40 years ago.; Fusing electronic dance music and Afrobeat, Ibibio Sound Machine are a shining example of how people, ideas and cultures can rub together to produce something new that we can all get down and dance to.
