Description

Ibeyi blew us away at their debut LA show (their 2nd in the US)! Ibyei is Lisa-Kainde and Naomi Diaz, 19-year-old French-Cuban fraternal twins and daughters of famed Cuban percussionist, Anga Díaz, member of Buena Vista Social Club. They lost their father unexpectedly at age 11, and started to learn his signature instrument, the cajón, and study the folks songs of Yoruba, the Nigerian language that traveled to Cuba via slavery in the 1700s. They write their own material in Yoruba, Spanish, French and English and their debut album is out Feb. 17, 2015. Keep your eyes on these sensational soul sisters! We try to film many shows we attend and throw up the raw unprocessed video quickly for people who missed seeing such great talent. Keep in mind we film in noisy bars, outdoors, community events & anywhere where great emerging artists are to be found so excuse the video/sound quality. You just have to be there!
