Las Hijas del Sol is formed by two singers, Piruchi Apo and Paloma Loribo from the island of Bioko, part of Equatorial Guinea. Their music is based on traditionals of the Bubi population of the island, but the daughters of the sun (=hijas del sol) went beyond tradition, resulting in a very lively and enthousiastic performance. Some of the songs are a capella, such as the stunning title song of their first album Sibeba.
