Since releasing their first eponymous album in 2015, Lisa-Kaindé Diaz and Naomi Diaz (Ibeyi) opened a historic Chanel Cruise Fashion Show in La Habana, Cuba, doing so with their now signature Yoruba chant, an ode to their Cuban heritage. The album earned them new fans and paved the way for collaborations with some of the most admirable artists of our time, including Beyoncé and Alvin Ailey. This ultimately led to their notable performances on Beyonce’s short film Lemonade. Ever since then, the sisters have gained International acclaim beyond the French reverie.
Play it Loud
Their second album, Ash, released in September 2017, presents a more visceral and potent political statement that pays homage to the Afro-Cuban culture and history, while running parallels with the modern political turmoil we live in. “We can do positive things with ashes,” Naomi says. “Ashes can fertilize,” Lisa-Kaindé adds. “There’s still hope.” The sisters have never shied away from writing lyrics that reflect the depth of their shared history, and include songs written in English, French and Yoruban.
