Ibeyi Cover Jay Electronica Better In Tune With The Infinite

Once in a while, when the stars align and all the right elements come together, a cover can be better than the original recording. Here’s an nice example.

Ibeyi is made up of 19 year-old French-Cuban twin sisters Lisa-Kaindé and Naomi Diaz. Ibeyi means “twins” in the African language of Yoruba, the native culture of their late father. Fun fact, the Yoruba people have the highest twinning rate in the world and twins occupy an important position within Yoruba culture.

These talented young women have created a unique minimalistic sound influenced by Yoruba, soul, hip-hop and downtempo.

Enjoy and thanks for listening.
