River
Ibeyi Lyrics


Come to your river
I will come to your river
I will come to your river
Come to your river
(Wash my soul)
I will come to your river
(Wash my soul)
I will come to your river
Wash my soul again

Carry away my dead leaves
Let me baptize my soul with the help of your waters
Sink my pains and complains
Let the river take them, river drown them
My ego and my blame
Let me baptize my soul with the help of your waters
Those old means are so ashamed
Let the river take them, river drown them

Come to your river
I will come to your river
I will come to your river
Come to your river
(Wash my soul)
I will come to your river
(Wash my soul)
I will come to your river
Wash my soul again

Carry away my old leaves
Let me baptize my soul with the help of your waters
Sink my pains and complains
Let the river take them, river drown them
My ego and my blame
Let me baptize my soul with the help of your waters
Those old means so ashamed
Let the river take them, river drown them

Come to your river
I will come to your river
I will come to your river
Come to your river
(Wash my soul)
I will come to your river
(Wash my soul)
I will come to your river
Wash my soul again

This is so intense just watching her (or them) being underwater for what seems to be an eternity.
Updated:
The Cuban French twin sisters are 19-year-old Naomi and Lisa-Kainde Diaz. They are daughters of the late Cuban percussion Anga Diaz.

Naomi plays percussion (the Cajon and the Batas) while Lisa plays the piano. Together the twins have learned the songs of their father’s culture, Yoruba.

Ibeyi is pronounced “ee-bey-ee” and translates as “Twins” in Yoruba.

Ibeyi sings in English and Yoruba and has created a minimalist sound that merges elements of their heritage with the contemporary music they’ve grown to love as teenagers in Paris, citing artists such as James Blake and King Krule amongst their wide range of influences.

Ibeyi are the first French artists directly signed for World by one of Beggars Group label in 30 years! they are on the loose again and ready to take the US by storm! One of their bigger gigs includes Webster Hall in New York, where they’ll be playing on October 2nd! Come listen to their strange and beautiful tunes sung in English and Yoruba – an ancient Nigerian language their ancestors used to speak before arriving in Cuba – on Afro-Cuban rhythms mixed with fuse jazz beats.

Twin sisters sharing the same waters as when they were in the womb. To be reborn again and again...

K-leb

Can't twins sometimes have membranes between them, meaning they're not sharing the same water?

SageTheFlame Tv

Ayyeee you looked at their birth chart huh

Luna Lea

The Womb, our 1st Ocean...

Didn't think of that. And their mother being the orisha of the rivers rebirthing them.

Best part is when they sing in Yoruba. Wanna hear more of that. I literally had goosebumps.

Mandy Taylor

It really was so beautiful!

theMonia

@Diawara Oxum, which is the orixá for whom they are singing, is part of the religion.
In the USA you ignore everything that is not in the Bible, but in Latin countries this religion is very strong.
I live in Brazil, the most common here is UMBANDA, which uses the same orixás.
There are many Umbanda centers and they receive ALL the same way, you don't have to be a descendant...
So, it's not the girls "appropriating" someone's culture, you're the one who was maybe born in a country that doesn't care or promote this religion

Do you hear that?

@Aghone Lego Off topic but you’re really pretty.
