The exciting, African-inspired music of Ibibio Sound Machine is set to be blaring once again in the vibrant city of Liverpool as it's been announced that they'll be kicking off the new year with a great performance at Fiesta Bombarda's January Festival at the Anglican Cathedral.

The band who are from London, with Nigerian-British singer Eno Williams at the helm, will be at the festival with the help of African Oye, the yearly summer spectacle has teamed up with the Bombarda team.

Fiesta Bombarda kicks off on January 27 and promises to be an event filled with plenty of rhythm and movement in a brilliant dedication to Africa. It takes place in the gorgeous surroundings of the Anglican Cathedral.
