Lisa-Kaindé and Naomi Diaz are Ibeyi (Yoruba for ‘twins’): sisters with a musical output beyond their 19-years.
Signed to XL Recordings in 2013, the pair have been mesmerising audiences with their hauntingly melancholic sounds. Currently recording their debut album, XL Recordings’ owner Richard Russell features on production duties – something we call ‘keeping the project close’.
We’ll be finding out more about these daughters of late percussionist Anga Diaz (Buena Vista Social Club). Ibeyi will also be performing a live set in the NTS Radio studios.
