French-Cuban duo Ibeyi will be landing in Australia for their debut shows this week! Twins Lisa-Kaindé Diaz and Naomi Diaz, Ibeyi will perform headline shows in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and at Perth Festival, as well as an appearance at WOMADelaide.
Lisa Kainde and Naomi were born in Paris, where they still live, but spent their first two years in Cuba. Their father was Miguel “Anga” Diaz, the member of the Buena Vista Social Club, who was acclaimed as the greatest conga player of his generation. With their musical upbringing, it only seemed fitting that their self-titled debut album has drawn universal acclaim for its unique fusion of genres, combining ritual chants with synths and samplers, jazz vocals with the mystery of Björk and Fever Ray. Singing in English, French and Yoruban (a Nigerian language), Ibeyi will be showcasing their recently released, self-titled debut album in an immersive, intimate live setting.
Thanks to Handsome Tours and Astral People, we have 1 x double pass to give away to their Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne shows.
