Cuban-French soul and experimental duo Ibeyi will be coming to Singapore to perform for the first time!
The dynamic musical duo, consisting of twin sisters Lisa-Kaindé Diaz and Naomi Diaz, are known for their soulful mix of Afro-Cuban, R&B and jazz, and pushing the boundaries of musical genres by perfectly blending their individual and varied music tastes. Fans can expect an energetic and instrumental-heavy show to keep audiences enthralled from start to end.
Since releasing their first eponymous self-titled album in 2015, Ibeyi have signed with independent British label XL Recordings who represent JUNGLE, Thom Yorke, Jack White and more. In 2017, they 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 fans and collaborators in some of the most iconic artists of our time, including Beyoncé and Alvin Ailey, which ultimately led to their notable performances on Beyonce’s short film Lemonade that led to their international rise to fame.
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.
Tickets officially go on sale on 27 February at 10am. For more information on the concert, you can check out here.
