[Chorus]
Come to you river
I will come to your river
I will come to you river
Come to you river
(Wash my soul)
I will come to your river
(Wash my soul)
I will come to your river
(Wash my soul again)

[Verse 1]
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 me’s are so ashamed
Let the river take them, river drown them

[Chorus]
Come to you river
I will come to your river
I will come to you river
Come to you river
(Wash my soul)
I will come to your river
(Wash my soul)
I will come to your river
(Wash my soul again)

[Verse 2]
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 all means are so ashamed
Let the river take them, river drown them

[Chorus]
Come to you river
I will come to your river
I will come to you river
Come to you 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.

Why do I keep holding my breath when I see footage of people under thw water?

emiynu

@daydreamer I was just going to say I think OP is an empath. But damn, just because people know not to hold their breaths while watching a damn music video means we're psycho? Fuck you!

Maloxi

@daydreamer That's a very low resolution interpretation of the studies but I get where you're coming from😉

daydreamer

Only psychopaths don't hold their breath when watching this video. It's the same with yawning. Psychopaths can't feel empathy and that's why they never start yawning when somebody they're with yawns. There's been actual studies about this.
