The debut album from the young Paris-based French-Cuban twin-sister duo of Naomi and Lisa-Kainde Diaz (who are also both daughters of the acclaimed Cuban percussionist Miguel “Anga” Diaz) is a mesmerizing blend of electro-pop, soul, hip hop, jazz and traditional Yoruban chants, with a spacious, minimalist sound combining somber piano, atmospheric synths, Cuban percussion and electronic beats accompanying the sisters’ heavenly harmonies and poignant lyrics of love, family and loss (sung in English, French and Yoruban). 2/13/2015 - Don Yates
