kexp sessions – ibeyi

while this segment may have ceased to be a dependable weekly feature, that doesn’t mean we’ll pass up notable kexp sessions.  the latest comes from ibeyi, a pair of sisters who released a phenomenal self-titled debut album back in february via xl.  the diaz sisters blend electronic elements and an organic jazz palate with their strong afro-cuban heritage, resulting in entrancing and emotive songs like “mama says” and “river.”  check out their full four-song performance, which includes a jay electronica cover, below.
