Ibeyi: Deathless on C à vous
A very strong performance from Ibeyi on France 5's C à vous show earlier this week, with the track Deathless.
Ibeyi are the kind of act that thrives in the French music scene. The sisters might be French by birth, but they were raised partly in Cuba, and influenced by Yoruba and Santeria.
Their music takes the best elements of this powerful mixture and presents it with the best modern production into something quite unique.
Their album Ash, their second, was released in France at the end of September, reaching the top 20.
Ibeyi have dates around Europe in early December, and go on to play some shows in South America before returning for more European gigs including London on February 28 and at the Olympia in Paris in October.
