Announcing our 2nd release on ADA Records:
IBOLO INI, by Franck Biyong and Orchestra Lipombe Jazz set for release JUNE 2nd
IBOLO INI is a psychedelic journey beginning with the the rhythms of pan-African villages and pygmy tribes, to the vibrant beat of West Africa cities. The album makes a stop in Paris for some analogue synthesis and ends up in East Africa with traditional and ethnic instruments being fused to create a dreamlike soundscape urging a fusion of the traditional with the intangible.
“I want to tear down the barrier that separates African music from the mainstream. I want to get inside that space and bring enough African flavor in the Rock N’ Roll world to creative a distinctive sound.”
IBOLO INI can be found on all of your favourite online stores and pre-orders, ahead of the full release on 2nd June, can be made on this link:
To celebrate the release we’ll be having a dynamic show with the full band playing a mixture of afro-funk, high-life, boogie and soul.
Franck will be joined on stage by Nairobi songstress SAGE, and supported by local DJs and producers, JINKU, LASTA and DYLAN S for a celebration of progressive African music.
