VIDEO:Introducing French Afro-Cuban Twin Sisters Ibeyi & Their Yoruba Doom Soul

Ibeyi, made up of Cuban-born, Paris-based twin sisters Naomi and Lisa-Kaindé Díaz, is an electronic doom soul duo who are forging a new spiritual sound with their debut EP Oya. The 19-year-old musicians are XL Recordings‘ newest signees, and their introductory singles “Oya” and “River” possess a hypnotic blend of hip-hop, electronica, and blues infused with Yoruba prayers and folk songs that will transport you to a higher realm upon first listen.

Singing in French, English, Spanish and Yoruba, Ibeyi count among their primary influences Nina Simone, Meshell Ndegeocello, James Blake and their late father, the celebrated Cuban jazz percussionist Miguel “Anga” Diaz. Ibeyi’s vocal range, which wavers from the raspy and wraith-like to the sonorous and divine, is ideal for their sonic palette which revels in the phantasmagorical groove of liturgical Yoruba songs. Besides singing in Yoruba–which was brought to Cuba by West African slaves–Ibeyi honor their father’s legacy and Afro-Cuban heritage through their percussive production and use of live instruments. Beatsmith Naomi plays both the cajón and the batá while Lisa-Kaindé remains more in tune with the musical mythos of Ibeyi’s sound by weaving Yoruba lore deeply into their lyrics. “River” is dedicated to the goddess Oshun (the mother of the Ibeyi, and their first single and EP are both named for  Oya (the benevolent orisha who took the Ibeyi in after Oshun was accused of witchcraft for birthing twins and kicked them out).

FURTHERING THE VIOLENCE ON THE EARTH IS NOT HELPING THE EARTH

I love (sarcastic) how some environmental activists push for things like renewable energy l.e solar energy without analyzing nor highlighting the exploitation and violence that takes place to make and gather the components in building these solar panels and wind farms.

Just look at what they are doing in places like the Democratic Republic of Congo and to areas of the Amazon, just to get at these resources to feed into “saving the world”.
Its not saving the world nor anybody its further entrenching poverty and destroying communities lives and livelihoods by exploiting and destroying their environment.

THINK ABOUT THE SOURCE AND THINK ABOUT WHAT THESE EXTRACTIONS ARE DOING TO THE ENVIRONMENT AND COMMUNITIES

THIS IS VIOLENCE!!!
