Ibeyi is one of the dopest live performers I’ve seen. They are a French-Cuban duo and they are twins! Lisa-Kaindé Diaz and Naomi Diaz. They sing in both English and in Yoruba. What is Yoruba? Yoruba is a Nigerian language their ancestors spoke before they were brought to Cuba by the Spanish. Lisa plays the piano, sings, and is the main voice while Naomi plays traditional Cuban and Peruvian percussion instruments. Even live, they sound so flawless. This video blew me away when I saw it a couple years ago. I also added their latest song, ‘Away’ so you can see how they have evolved. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
