Both twenty-years-old, both French-Cuban, and both twin sisters, Naomi and Lisa-Kainde Diaz are Ibeyi, the Yoruba word for “twins.”

Together they make some of the best percussive, organic, heartfelt soul that I have heard.

 

“Ghosts” bobs along on a slow hip-hop Cajon beat, propelled by a gently rhythmic piano line and mournful yet hopeful vocals.
