Afro-Cuban, French twins Lisa-Kaindé and Naomi Díaz, known to the world as Ibeyi, have shared a video for new single ‘Sister 2 Sister‘ – the lead track of their newly announced album, Spell 31, out May 6th on XL Recordings / Remote Control Records.
Directed by Colin Solal Cardo and starring Lisa-Kaindé and Naomi Díaz, ‘Sister 2 Sister’ is inspired by the twins sisterhood and their Latinx roots. Sampling Ibeyi’s early single ‘River‘, the track sees the duo evoking the chant of “IBEYI.”
It’s no coincidence that Ibeyi has returned to a world in need of spiritual healing. After tackling subjects like womanhood, racism, and activism on their 2017 release Ash and familial history, death and origins on their 2015 self-titled release, on Spell 31 the twins set out to remobilise the power of their birth given destiny as Ibeyi, which has led them on a path to restoration in pursuit of true harmony, healing and magic.
