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 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".
Their music has elements of Yoruba, French, and Afro-Cuban and fuses jazz with beats, samples with traditional instruments.
