Spell 31 is the dynamic third album from the Afro-Cuban, French duo Ibeyi. The ten-track project is a transcendent exploration of the sisters' relationship with their ancestors and their sound is as strongly infused with spirituality as their previous releases have been, for those who know and love their unique style, this album did not come to disappoint.
The album comes seven years after their second album Ash - a vulnerable and powerfully political release that was met with high critical acclaim. Laced with snippets of laughter and powerful ruminations on their ancestral connections as a means of understanding the truths of the past and the power of the ancient. Spell 31 draws inspiration from a collection of profound sources that include The Ancient Egyptian Book of the Dead and Black Flag's iconic punk anthem 'Rise Above'.
