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 »

Moyuba Echumingua y los orishas
Moyuba Oshun Shango and Yemaya

We hear laughter and we think of you
We walk on rhythm and we think of you
Feeling our union and we think of you
Receive your spirit and we think of you

Moyuba Echumingua y los orishas
Moyuba Oshun Shango and Yemaya

Let's remember with rhythm our loved ones that are gone
All the joy when we're singing that no spell can destroy

We hear laughter and we think of you
We walk on rhythm and we think of you
Feeling our union and we think of you
Receive your spirit and we think of you

Moyuba Echumingua y los orishas
Moyuba Oshun Shango and Yemaya

If we sing they may come guiding all of our steps
You live through us Baba we're singing for you

We hear laughter and we think of you
We walk on rhythm and we think of you
Feeling our union and we think of you
Receive your spirit and we think of you
