Ibeyi share music video for 'Transmission/Michaelion'

Ibeyi are back with a beautiful music video for their song 'Transmission/Michaelion'

The song is the masterful centerpiece of the twins critically-acclaimed sophomore album Ash and features Meshell Ndegeocello on bass, a sample from the audiobook ‘Citizen: An American Lyric’ by Claudia Rankine plus an excerpt from The Diary of Frida Kahlo read by the twins mother Maya Dagnino. On the song, Lisa-Kaindé explains, “This song is the heat of our album. Transmitting is one of the reasons why we write songs.”

In honour of that sentiment, the music video for the song which was directed by Jamie-James Medina and Fons Schiedon, carries the viewer through the fabled story of the Tree of Ténéré.
