Ibeyi – Mama Says | New Music
French/Cuban duo Ibeyi, consisting of twin sisters Naomi and Lisa-Kainde Diaz, have just released a new track titled “Mama Says” with XL Recordings. While only accompanied by various finger snap beats and piano chords, the simplicity and minimalist nature of the song only strengthens the beauty, power, and emotion of the sisters’ entrancing vocals. They sing most of the song in English, along with a portion of chanting in the West African language of Yoruba. “Mama Says” is available to buy on iTunes here. Ibeyi are also playing a free show at Rough Trade West on Monday, September 22, so be sure to check them out there, listen to “Mama Says” below.
