Lisa and Naomi Diaz are the daughters of the late Cuban percussionist Anga Diaz. Naomi plays percussive instruments, the Cajon and the Batas, while Lisa plays piano. Together the twins have learned the songs of their father's culture, Yoruba.

Yoruba travelled from West Africa to Cuba with slavery in the 1700s. The Yoruba people have the highest twinning rate in the World, and twins occupy an important position within Yoruba culture. Ibeyi is pronounced «ee-bey-ee» and translates as «Twins» in Yoruban.

Ibeyi sing in English and Yoruban, and have created a minimalist sound that merges elements of their
heritage with their natural love of modern music as teenagers growing up in Paris, citing artists such as James Blake and King Krule amongst their wide range of influences.

“Their single ‘River’ is essentially a gospel song sung over a sparse beat, and it is both awesome and otherworldly.” (Stereogum)

“You’re unlikely to hear anything as startlingly original all year.” (NME)

“If this doesn’t lift your spirit, literally nothing will.” (Disco Naivete)
