From Paris to Cuba and all points in between, Ibeyi created a global sensation with their debut in 2015. How does one follow up on a groundbreaker? The young artists immersed themselves in their Afro-Cuban roots, and collaborated with musical luminaries. They return to the US this fall, including a date Saturday October 28th at the North Beach Bandshell in Miami Beach.
Ibeyi is 22-year-old French-Cuban twins Lisa-Kaindé and Naomi Diaz. Since the release of their critically-acclaimed, self-titled debut album, Ibeyi have been captivating audiences across the globe with their unique blend of modern pop, hip-hop and electronic influenced with the traditional sounds of Yorùbá. At the end of 2016 the adoration of their debut album revealed itself through requests for the twins to open the Chanel Cruise fashion show in Cuba, an appearance in Beyoncé’s video for Lemonade, and Maura Bigonzetti’s ‘Deep,’ a performance choreographed to music by Ibeyi for Alvin Ailey’s Dance Theatre
