Product Notes

Ibeyi (pronounced ee-bey-ee) means 'twins' in the language of the Yoruban culture of Lisa-Kainde and Naomi Diaz. The album of the same name, produced by XL Recordings boss Richard Russell, is the story of two sisters: their relationship, their origins, their shared history and their musical chemistry. The twins' roots are reflected in the polyglot nature of the lyrics - in English, French and Yoruban - and music which combines ritual chants with synthesizers and samplers, Jazz vocals with the spellbinding mystery of Bjork and Fever Ray, the traditional with the modern. This uniquely cosmopolitan sound is the perfect vehicle for their intimately personal stories. According to them, 'This album is about love and family and people who are gone.' Lisa-Kainde and Naomi (the eldest by two minutes) were born in Paris, where they still live, but spent their first two years in Cuba. Their father was Miguel 'Anga' Diaz, the member of the Buena Vista Social Club, who was acclaimed as the greatest Conga player.
