when we saw Ibeyi (pronounced ee-bey-ee) perform live a few months back, we were blown away - they sound so incredibly refreshing, imaginative, inventive & genuine.
In Yoruban, Ibeji translates as "twins" & Ibeyi is a French/Cuban musical duo consisting of twin sisters, Lisa-Kaindé & Naomi Diaz. they sing in English & the language of Yoruba, a West African language that travelled to Cuba via slavery in the 1700s. on the strength of this release, i think we can expect some seriously exciting music to come from these girls in the future. for fans of laura mvula, fka twigs or micachu.
