Ibeyi

Ibeyi is a French (with Cuban, Venezuelan and Tunisian origins) musical duo consisting of twin sisters Lisa-Kaindé Diaz and Naomi Diaz. The duo sings in English, French, Spanish and Yoruba, a Nigerian language spoken in West Africa by their ancestors before being taken to Cuba as slaves in the 1700s. Lisa, the lead singer, plays the piano; Naomi plays the traditional Peruvian/Cuban percussion instruments cajón and Batá drum. In the Yoruba language, Ibeyi (Ìbejì) means "twins".Their music has elements of Yoruba, French and Afro-Cuban, and fuses jazz with beats, samples with traditional instruments. more »

Welcome to my earth
It's a crying shame
We have built a foolish world
Busy fighting, full of lying and denying
My ghosts are not gone
They dance in the shade
And gives the black core of my heart
Making words making sounds making songs

Now you can feel my heart spinning
You turn my whole life around
I want to write a new beginning
Let go of the ghosts
Let dreams and hopes lay
And give our love another try
Should we just let it be

Make love to me
My ghosts are not gone
They give the black core of my heart
Making words making sounds making songs

Now you can feel my heart spinning
You turn my whole life around
I want to write a new beginning
Let go of the ghosts
Let dreams and hopes lay
And give our love another try
Should we just let it be

We ain't nothing without love
Without love we ain't nothing
Without love without love
