Ibeyi Oya EP on 12" Vinyl

Naomi and Lisa-Kainde Diaz are 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 which traveled 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 Yoruba. Ibeyi sing in English and Yoruba and they have created a minimalist sound that merges elements of their heritage with their natural love of modern music as teenagers brought up in Paris, citing artists such as James Blake and King Krule amongst their wide range of influences. Their debut EP Oya was produced by XL boss Richard Russell and includes the new tracks "Oya" and "River," plus the mixes "Oya (Oya Capella)" and "River (Oshun Dub)."
