Acoustic Album N°8 is an album of acoustic covers of Katie Melua's 2020 album, Album N°8. Moving from a luxurious orchestration to a single instrument is not a problem for the Georgia-born Briton, who is as comfortable with the Georgian Philharmonic Orchestra as she is alone with her guitar. The breadth of the symphony orchestra's strings form a kind of counterpoint to the often intimate and autobiographical character of the songs' lyrics. Here, everything flows: the simple and natural beauty of the acoustic guitar (sometimes enhanced by keyboards played by Mark Edwards) fits perfectly not only with the lyrics, but also with Melua's personality and her incomparably pure voice. The listener will be able to curl up to songs that evoke the end of a love affair (A Love Like ThatAirtime) or Katie Melua's father's journey to the Caucasus (Leaving the Mountain). There is also a track co-written with Katie's brother Zurab (Maybe I Dreamt It). This tribute to choreographer Pina Bausch is accompanied here by the sober and sensitive contribution of the violinist Simon Goff. The latter also features in Remind Me To Forget. A pure and peaceful album, with the feel of an intimate concert. © Nicolas Magenham/Qobuz

Tango: Sounds of the Río de la Plata

Rooted in dance and eventually becoming its very own artistic movement, the history of tango is an epic one; and its future truly looks limitless. A musical genre with hybrid origins, it remains one of the most incredible creations to come out of Río de la Plata. “It’s the only thing we don’t ask Europe for its opinion on,” wrote Argentina’s Macedonio Fernández, the man that young Jorge Luis Borges admired “to the point of devout and passionate plagiarism.” A number of coincidences in the late 19th century gave rise to this style of music. As musicologist Carlos Vega said: "no one really tried to create tango." And yet, here it is; complete with its own traditions and innovations, as well as its own golden age, ill-fated artists, myths and rituals.

Tropicália: the Story of a Brazilian Revolution

In the late 1960s, a group of young Brazilian artists rose up against the ruling military junta by fusing local popular music, rock and avant-garde. Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, Gal Costa, Os Mutantes and their friends invented tropicália, one of the most original musical adventures of the 20th century.

Herbie Hancock - Hunt for the Funk

Along with his former employer Miles Davis, pianist Herbie Hancock is the other founding father of jazz-fusion. In 1973, his album "Head Hunters" laid down the Holy Scriptures of the most successful union of jazz improvisation and funk psychedelic trance. Afros and platform boots all around!
