Ibeyi stream Jay Electronica cover, announce worldwide tour dates

03 October 2014, 15:12 | Written by Laurence Day

Naomi and Lisa-Kainde Diaz - AKA Paris-based Ibeyi - have covered Jay Electronica's "Better In Tune With The Infinite" during live sessions at Residence La Revolution for their forthcoming XL debut.

The twins put their own inimitable spin on the tune, turning it into a beguiling crossover of Yoruban folk, French jazz, soul, pop, indietronica and ambient. They're a difficult outfit to describe, and their lack of pigeonholability makes them considerably more fascinating.

Watch the cover below and then cast your eyes over their tour dates, including their first full UK date.


7 - La Cigale, Paris, France (supporting Asa)
23 - Courtyard Theatre, London, UK
30 - JazzOnze, Lausanne, Switzerland (free show)
31 - Kasern, Bale, Croatia


3 - Hostess Weekender Festival, Tokyo, Japan
7 - Salle Daniel Ferry, Nanterre, France (with Sandra Nikake)
10 - Astra, Berlin (supporting Chet Faker), Germany
12 - Les Inrocks Festival (supporting Damon Albarn), Paris, France SOLD OUT
13 - Vondelkerk, Amsterdam, Netherlands
18 - Joe’s Pub, New York, USA

Ibeyi's untitled, Richard Russell-produced debut will be released in 2015 on XL Recordings.
