The grandson of one of Fela Kuti’s first managers, Damini Ogulu aka Burna Boy shares Nigerian origins, African pride and a certain charisma with the inventor of Afrobeat. A superstar at home, his notoriety keeps on growing at an international level, evidenced by his collaborations with Drake, Lily Allen and Major Lazer, and his Best International Artist BET award from 2019. The 19-track-strong African Giant also justifies this level of success: the meticulous production and hefty melodies complement his suave, sexy and compelling vocals. His songs elegantly float between R&B, sophisticated pop, soca, zouk, hip-hop but also jazz and rock. Distancing himself from the commercial label of afrobeats, probably out of respect for the image of the original afrobeat, Burna Boy describes his music as afro fusion. The riotous music gives you an unshakeable desire to dance… and makes you ponder the huge influence Africa has on most of today’s music. The calibre of the featured artists (British soul sister Jorja Smith, American prince of R&B Jeremih, the heir to reggae’s leader Damian Marley and Beninese queen Angélique Kidjo for francophone West Africa to name but a few) only goes to show Burna Boy’s aristocratic status in the industry. But even without them, it wouldn’t be difficult to understand the importance of this African Giant. © Benjamin MiNiMuM/Qobuz

Let’s Head for Cape Verde

Ever since the Portuguese annexed this collection of desert islands in the 15th century to make it a slave trade hub, the Black and Portuguese populations have mixed over time to give birth to a brand new language and brand new music—each island more or less developing its own style—, transforming the Cape Verdean dry lands into a bottomless talent pool.

The Great History of Malian Music

Mandingo traditions or urban intersections, ancestral chants from the griots or dance bands on the day following the Independence, the family tree of Malian music possesses deep roots, leafy branches and a strong sap. Let’s take a look back at the fascinating history.

Tuareg Blues: The Rock Oasis

Since the Tuareg group Tinariwen released their first official album in 2002, entitled “The Radio Tisdas Sessions”, their guitar-soaked electric music has become a 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. And Western rockers have often been attracted to this poetic music emanating from the sand dunes and rocky expanses.
