It's easy to argue that once a genre like bluegrass gets popular, too many singers jump on board and the music gets watered down. Still, there should always be room for artists like Randy Kohrs. While many contemporary bluegrass singers seem to have smoothed all the wrinkles out of Bill Monroe's music, Kohrs keeps it natural, filling I'm Torn with passionate vocals and great instrumental work. Indeed, a song like "Over You By Now" is a long way from tradition, but Kohrs' exuberant vocal gives it an earthy quality that hits the listener in the gut. He's joined by a series of good musicians, including banjoist Scott Vestal, mandolinist Josh Williams, and fiddler Tim Crouch. He's even joined by none other than Dolly Parton on "It Looked Good on Paper," and her work here has a lot more soul than her recent, celebrated work on Sugar Hill. Kohrs is also a good musician, and his Dobro adds a healthy dose of the blues to his style of bluegrass. With solid arrangements, a good set list, and fervent vocal work, I'm Torn is the kind of album that both traditional and contemporary bluegrass fans will enjoy.

Tuareg Blues: The Rock Oasis

Since the Tuareg group Tinariwen released their first official album in 2002, entitled “The Radio Tisdas Sessions”, their electric, guitar-soaked music has become its own category of rock - one that is recognised and respected from Bamako to Los Angeles. This international success has allowed many musicians from the Sahara to get their music heard, as Western rockers continue to be drawn towards this poetic music emanating from the sand dunes and rocky expanses.

Joni Mitchell : the Blue Period

An immaculate masterpiece of 70's folk, “Blue” hasn't aged a day since its release in June 1971. But why are today’s artists still so fascinated by this fourth, intimate album by the Canadian singer-songwriter ?

The Women of Nashville

It's not easy to elbow your way through the macho Music City scene, the birthplace of country music, when you're a woman. Over the years, some of them have nevertheless managed to shift lines and attitudes, like these ten pioneers and revolutionaries who have put – even stamped – their boots on Nashville's table.
