Ibeyi is a French-Cuban musical duo consisting 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 Spanish/Cuban percussion instruments cajón and Batá drum, while Lisa also plays piano.
In the Yoruba language, Ibeyi translates as "twins".
Their music has elements of Yoruba, French and Afro-Cuban, and fuses jazz with beats, samples with traditional instruments.
The twins were born in Paris but lived in Havana for the first two years of their lives. They often visited Cuba yearly on holiday, but were primarily raised in Paris, where they currently reside. Their father was the famed Cuban percussionist, Anga Díaz, who has received a Grammy for his work with the latin jazz bandЧитать далее в Википедии...
