Ibeyi River Video

Ibeyi “River” Video

French-Cuban twin sister duo Ibeyi have just released the visuals to their haunting song “River,” off their Oya EP. The XL Recordings signees have made quite an impression, with both Naomi and Lisa-Kaides singing and playing Yoruba instruments on the record. The duo inherited the knowledge of traditional Yoruba music from their father, Buena Vista Social Club’s legendary percussionist Miguel “Anga” Diaz.

The video features the two sisters submerged underwater, and they take turns surfacing to sing their portion of the record. The twins are expressionless, which makes it all the harder to figure out what is going on. However, the visuals fit the song so well that even thought not much is happening onscreen, it becomes entirely transfixing.
