For twin sisters Lisa-Kainde and Naomi Diaz, the past few years have been a whirlwind. The musical duo Ibeyi ("Twins" in the Yoruba language) has collaborated with Beyonce on her 2016 record "Lemonade," had the late-great Prince come to a show in Minneapolis, and had its world rocked by sax player-composer Kamasi Washington.Ibeyi sings in multiple languages -- English, Yoruba and French -- and makes music that defies a specific genre, blending Afro-Cuban beats with hip-hop and electronica.Naomi was the extrovert growing up, and developed a keen eye for emerging artists, especially in hip-hop and reggaeton. With her free-form Afro, Lisa-Kainde was more of a stay-at-home songwriter, and listens to indie and electronic musicians like Robyn, James Blake and Bon Iver founder Justin Vernon, or else vintage jazz and soul tunes.Lisa-Kainde writes lyrics, sings and plays piano, while Naomi plays percussion, including the cajon like her father, and sings backup vocals.
