Watch XL Recordings Duo Ibeyi’s Soulful Jay Electronica Cover
The French-Cuban twin sisters perform “Better in Tune With the Infinite,” recorded in-between sessions for their debut album on XL.
Back in July, The FADER premiered the debut track and video from Ibeyi, the musical project of French-Cuban twin sisters Naomi and Lisa-Kainde Diaz. The 19-year-old siblings' initial single “Oya” was an ethereal, percussion-laden song. Now they reveal a more reflective and soulful side with a beautiful live performance of Jay Electronica's "Better in Tune With the Infinite," which you can peep above. In other news, the duo have announced that they will embark on a tour starting this Tuesday in Paris and running through November, including their first trip to New York and Los Angeles. Ibeyi is currently recording its full-length debut record slated for release next year on XL Recordings.
