Ibeyi – Oya

A fabulous mish-mash of influences that creates a distinctive original whole; I picked out Georgian monastic harmonies, Middle Eastern vocal inflections, Bjork-esque electronica and African tribal chants / rhythms.  To make this work at all is impressive, to do it this well – bloomin’ incredible.
