Two Afro-Latinx acts from wildly different backgrounds connect for this showcase of the diversity of diasporic art. The French Afro-Cuban twin sisters of Ibeyi make spiritually rich soul music that channels their Yoruba ancestors, drawing equally from hip-hop, soul, and caribbean polyrhythms. Emicida is a Brazilian freestyle battle rapper whose off-the-cuff flows and samba-infused beats are part of a new generation of Brazilian artists creating their own sound.
