Buena Vista Social Twins

Anga Díaz was a member of Buena Vista Social Club, and, if that wasn’t enough, he’s only gone and had some musical twins. Said twins are now nineteen years old and signed to XL Recordings last year.

Lisa-Kaindé and Naomi Diaz perform as a duo under the name Ibeyi. They sing in English and the language of Yoruba, a West African language that travelled to Cuba via slavery in the 1700’s. Ibeyi is pronounced “ee-bey-ee” and, in Yoruba, translates as “twins”.
