Ibeyi is a French-Cuban musical duo consisting of twenty-something twin sisters Lisa-Kaindé Diaz and Naomi Diaz. The duo sings in English, French, Spanish and Yoruba, a Nigerian language spoken in West Africa (Ibeyi means ‘twins’ in Yoruba).

The sisters’ father was the famed Cuban percussionist, Anga Díaz, who was a member of Buena Vista Social Club and a Grammy winner with Latin jazz band Irakere.

The band is scheduled to appear both weekends of Coachella Festival in Indio, California.
