SHREM'S NEWBIES BUT TO-BE'S: "RIVER" - Ibeyi
"Daughters of the great Cuban percussionist Anga Diaz, the twin sisters of IBEYI quickly seduced the producer of Asa's albums. Lisa-Kaïndé plays the piano and sings. She's only 21 but her voice evokes the greatest ones. Her sister Naomi backs her vocals and plays percussions. They write their own material in Spanish, French or English." This is the info I gathered about the enigmatic Cuban sisters based in France from their official Facebook page. Ibeyi's "Oya" EP truly is an alternative delicacy, balancing mysteriously between the electronic soul, unconventional folk from the unidentified lands with some tribal beats to spice things up even more. Truly original and with this haunting video "River" will most likely stay with you for long!
