I have been criticized for blogging unintelligibly long sentences and stuffing links in my posts like Mohammed Bello Abubakar did his 130 brides. I have since decided on shorter sentences (as a self-imposed discipline rather than kowtowing to advocates of the lowest common denominator and Flesch–Kincaid suck-ups). As for linking, that's another matter.
Sisters Lisa-Kaindé and Naomi Diaz perform under the title Ibeyi. Heavily influenced by Afro-Cuban, Latin-Jazz, and Nigerian beats the duo sings in both English and Yoruba. The name “Ibeyi” translates from the Yoruba word for “twins.”
