Travelling companions of Claude Nougaro and Bernard Lubat, author of the children’s book Tanbou, the singer, trumpet player and drummer Edmony Krater is one of the essential actors of the contemporary Guadeloupian gwo ka. Put back on tracks by the label Heavenly Sweetness, which rereleased in 2016 Tijan Pou Velo, his homage to Marcel Lollia aka Vélo, one of the mythical figures of this percussive music from the maroon slaves, Edmony Krater offers a set of new compositions. Assisted by an efficient quartet (acoustic and electric pianist Frank Souriant, bass player Julian Babou, drummer Kulusé Souriant and ka drummer Pascal Bilongue), Edmony Krater leads the band with flexibility. His gwo ka, blended with jazz-rock or funk, benefits from nice trumpet sections and tender singing. Despite a surprising conclusion on reggae rhythms, slightly inferior to the rest of the album, An Ka Sonjé is a most refreshing poetic and fruitful islet. ©BM/Qobuz

Undervalued: a Look Back on Female Composers

From Sappho of Mytilene to Kaija Saariaho and Clara Schumann, several women have managed to break through the macho codes of the milieu and become composers. While the classical music landscape has been largely dominated by men in recent centuries, the work of their female colleagues, whether pioneers or contemporaries, is just as fascinating. Here we put eleven undervalued figures of female composition in the spotlight.

Betty Davis, The Funk Panther

Without her, there would be no Macy Gray, Erykah Badu, Amy Winehouse or Janelle Monáe! Despite having disappeared from the music scene for years, Betty Davis remains a pioneer of feline soul sisters. The ultimate funk goddess. She also brought electricity to a certain Miles Davis who she would go on to marry, if only for a short while. But who are you Betty?

Trojan: 50 Years of Digging Reggae

Once past the Bob Marley tree, many reggae fans discovered the depth and diversity of the Jamaican music forest through the compilations of Trojan Records, some of which became true Proust madeleines. For the occasion of the label's 50th birthday, Qobuz looks back over the fluctuating trajectory of the label, together with Laurence Cane-Honeysett, curator of Trojan Records and author of the book The Story of Trojan Records.
