Ibeyi's self-titled debut is one you need to hear
Musical duo Ibeyi have a bond that goes beyond being twins. Lisa-Kaindé Diaz and Naomi Diaz combine their French, Cuban and Yoruba heritage to make enthralling music — and we at q believe their self-titled debut record is one you need to hear.
Their music honours their past while being decidedly forward thinking. It's a captivating mix of jazz, electro, world music and R&B.
The twins join Shad in studio q to discuss their debut effort and perform three songs.
