Fri, 30 Jan 2015 15:04:49
Ibeyi are 19-year-old French Cuban twins -- Naomi and Lisa-Kaindé Díaz. They are daughters of the late Cuban percussion Anga Díaz. Naomi plays percussive instruments, the Cajon and the Batas, while Lisa plays piano.
Together, the twins combine modern pop, hip-hop and electronic influences with the traditional sounds of their father's Yorùbán culture. This is their first North American tour.
