(Lisa-Kaïndé Diaz, Naomi Diaz)
[2013-…], Paris, Île-de-France, France |
Ibeyi is a French-Cuban musical duo founded in 2013 and based in Paris.
Ibeyi consists of twin sisters, Lisa-Kaindé Diaz and Naomi Diaz.
The duo sings in English and Yoruba, — a Nigerian language their ancestors spoke before being brought to Cuba by the Spanish to be made slaves in the 1700s — though Lisa’s is the lead voice. Naomi plays traditional Cuban percussion instruments cajón and Batá drum, while Lisa also plays piano.
Ibeyi is pronounced ee-bey-ee. In the Yoruba language this translates as “twins”.
Ibeyi’s music has elements of Yoruba, French, and Afro-Cuban and fuses jazz with beats, samples with traditional instruments.
