Ibeyi – ‘Ghosts’

The wonderful French-Cuban twins Lisa-Kaindé and Naomi Diaz aka Ibeyi have the music in their blood. Their father, Anga Díaz, was a well-known Cuban percussionist who played with Buena Vista Social Club. They have a couple of great tunes already from their debut album out on XL on February 13th and ‘Ghosts’, is another example of the twins’ talent. It’s a piano-lead song with scattering percussion that really takes shape when the pair sing in their father’s Yoruban tongue, proving it’s not just musical talent, but spirit and culture that he passed on.
