Ibeyi – “Ghosts” Video
Ibeyi is the duo of two twin sisters, the French-Cuban daughters of Buena Vista Social Club percussionist Anga Díaz. Their video for “River,” which we posted last year, was the sort of simple, haunting piece of work that sticks with you. The band’s self-titled debut arrives next month, and with their new video for the meditative-but-joyous “Ghosts,” they once again link up with “River” director Ed Morris. Morris uses inky black-and-white and double-exposure to make it hard to tell where one sister ends and the other begins, as if they were both each other’s ghosts. Watch it below
Ibeyi is out 2/17 on XL.
