beyi are French Afro-Cuban twin sisters Lisa-Kainde and Naomi Diaz. Performing from a young age, the daughters of famed Cuban percussionist Ánga Diaz, have released two critically acclaimed albums - a self-titled debut in 2015 and Ash in 2017. Ibeyi's Spell 31 is their boldest offering yet, an antidote to apathy in a divided world. Ethereal, crystalized signature Ibeyi harmonies are fused with gospel, persuasive percussion, momentous deeply resonant bass, and electronic neo soul expressions, transporting us into a sublime rawness that is refined by Richard Russell's precise hand and synthesized into astonishing clarity.
They have toured extensively across Europe, the US, Canada, Mexico, South America, Australia and Asia garnering devoted fans around the globe, including Beyoncé, ADELE, Quincy Jones, Erykah Badu, Angélique Kidjo, Lin-Manuel Miranda & more; whilst also having been invited to perform for icons - from Karl Lagerfeld to Prince.
Previous collaborations include tracks with Kamasi Washington, Meshell Ndegeocello, Mala Rodriguez and Chilly Gonzalez on their sophomore album. On Spell 31 they collaborate with Jorja Smith, Pa Salieu and BERWYN.
Bonnie Raitt is a singer, songwriter and guitarist whose unique style blends blues, R&B, rock, and pop. After 20 years as a cult favorite, she broke through to the top in the early 90s with her GRAMMY-award winning albums, Nick of Time and Luck of the Draw, which featured hits, “Something to Talk About” and “I Can’t Make You Love Me” among others. Raitt’s widely acclaimed 2012 independent release Slipstream sold over a quarter-million copies, making it one of the top selling independent albums, and earned Raitt her 10th Grammy Award (Best Americana Album). In February 2016, Raitt released her highly anticipated 20th album, Dig In Deep (Redwing Records). On tour for much of 2017-2019, Raitt and her band performed in Australia, New Zealand, and Canada before touring as support for James Taylor in stadiums and arenas across the U.S., United Kingdom and Europe. As known for her lifelong commitment to social activism as she is for her music, Raitt has long been involved with the environmental movement and continues to work on safe energy issues, environmental protection, social justice, human rights, and blues/music education.
