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 »

All my dreams lead to you
Queen of my thoughts, Yani
All of my dreams lead to you
Queen of my thoughts, Yani
I still feel you in my skin
Then you disappear, Yani

Why did fate make you go?
Will we meet in heaven, meet in heaven?

You never come by, Yani

Why did fate make you go?
Will we meet in heaven, meet in heaven?

We will meet in heaven, meet in heaven
We will meet in heaven, meet in heaven
We will meet in heaven, meet in heaven
