Ibibio Sound Machine – Mama Say [Listen]

The British band Ibibio Sound Machine, known for their unique blend of African and electronic music, dropped the track called Mama Say.
The third single is taken from the band’s upcoming album called Pull the Rope which comes out on May 3, 2024 via Merge Record and features a catchy chorus with infectious beats that will keep you dancing all night long.

About the track:
“This track is simply about honoring women.
The main chorus vocal is sung in pidgin:
“Mama say make I honor am”—in other words, “Mother says I must honor her.”
It is essentially about empowering and uplifting the women in our lives.
The track plays musically upon the tension between the traditional and the modern; the arpeggios in the chorus were played on a Juno 60, and the west African vocal stylings of the verse provide a contrasting feel to these electronic elements.”
