On Sunday: Watch/Listen to Ibeyi’s “Mama Says”

Nov 30th, 2014 in Music


Ibeyi is the twin sisters, Lisa-Kaindé and Naomi Diaz (daughters of Cuban percussionist, Anga Díaz, who was a member of Buena Vista Social Club).  The Parisian sisters sing both in English and the Nigerian language Yoruba.  They have signed to XL and have started recording their debut album.  Check out below a sample of the impending long-release via soulful track Mama Says.  The song languishes somewhere in the fold between jazz and soul, but bears updated digital production and effects.  All to great affect.  We love it, and look forward to their album.
