We are happy to inform you that IBK Spaceshipboi has been selected to represent Nigeria at the 1BEAT music program. A program that brings together emerging musical leaders from around the world to collaboratively create original work and develop a global network of civically engaged music initiatives. This year IBK Spaceshipboi makes it in as one of the 25 creative musicians (fellows) selected on the program.
These boundary-breaking fellows from 17 different countries and territories, including Russia, Cuba, Zimbabwe, Egypt, Venezuela, Nigeria and the U.S., bring singular and compelling stories, and range from experimental producers to deeply-rooted traditional virtuosi to indie-rockers and more.
They join together from October 12- November 11, 2015 in Saratoga, Califonia and will later tour different cities in the United States showcasing their collaborative works and inspiring people as they go.
