Music: River by Ibeyi

Music: River by Ibeyi

Like most musicians I recently discovered (Lake Street Dive, Kishi Bashi, Tal National, Mirel Wagner and many more), I first heard of Ibeyi in KEXP's Channel.

IBEYI, twins in the Yoruba language, is a French-Cuban duo - Lisa-Kaindé Diaz and Naomi Diaz. Mama Says was the first song I heard, followed by Ghost; then the hauntingly beautiful River.

Watch and listen...

Ibeyi's music reminds me of Regina Spektor's vocal control and barebone instrumentation.
