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 »

Even if I feel the sun on my skin everyday
If I don't feel you
Even if I see the most beautiful thing up in the sky
If I don't see you

Take me oya, take me oya
Take me oya, take me oya

Even if my hand's skin catch the wind
Catch the cloud, if I don't see you
Even if I feel the sun on my skin everyday
If I don't feel you

Take me oya, take me oya
Take me oya, take me oya

Toi, le soleil, l'Uni, toi qui parles à mon coeur
Toi, le soleil, l'Uni, mais qui pars sans moi
Toi qui pars sans moi

Take me oya, take me oya
Take me oya, take me oya
