Oya EP

Oya EP

Ibeyi are 19 year old French Cuban twins, Naomi and Lisa-Kainde Diaz. They are daughters of the late Cuban percussionist Anga Diaz. They sing in English and Yoruba, 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 Frank Ocean, James Blake and King Krule amongst their wide range of influences. They are currently recording their debut album for XL, with Richard Russell on production.
