Ibeyi

By February 25, 2015

Today’s magical witches are brought to you by XL Recordings‘ French-Cuban duo, Ibeyi (pronounced ‘ee-bey-ee’). Singing in both Yoruba and English, cosmic twins Naomi and Lisa-Kaindé Díaz, bring a fresh uniqueness while reminding us of spirits past (a little Badu mixed with some Bjork slash Kate Bush). With a lineage of music royalty, their late father Anga Diaz was the famous percussionist of the Buena Vista Social Club, these sultry sisters have already won our hearts with their first self-titled album release. To fall in love, get started with some of our favorite selects on Spotify below or via Rdio.
