IbeyiConcerts & Performances
Ibeyi (pronounced ee-bey-ee) means “twins” in the language of the Yoruban culture of Lisa-Kainde and Naomi Diaz, Cuban twins born and raised in Paris. Lisa-Kainde and Naomi’s father was Miguel “Anga” Diaz, member of the Buena Vista Social Club who was acclaimed as the greatest conga player of his generation. Their sound is a subtle melange of diverse influences: Lisa-Kainde’s soul and jazz leanings and Naomi’s up-to-the-minute beatmaking amid the bloodlines of France, Cuba and Africa, including the use of Yoruban chants they first heard in the Santeria ceremonies. Tickets are $25 – $30.
