    Ibeyi is a French-Cuban musical duo consisting of twin sisters, Lisa-Kaindé Diaz and Naomi Diaz.[1] The duo sings in English and Yoruba,[2] — 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 Peruvian/Cuban percussion instruments cajón and Batá drum, while Lisa also plays piano.[3]

    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.[2]
