Listening to Dayme Arocena’s music for the very first time, you are overwhelmed by the power of her voice. The sound seems to resonate in a compelling combination between prayers to the Orishas, gods from the Cuban religion Santeria, the fiery passion of a gospel choir and the vocal range of an experienced jazz or soul singer. In Sonocardiogram, all three of these elements can clearly be heard. The opening track, Nangareo, is reminiscent of an offering ceremony to Olorun, the supreme God in Yoruba mythology, and the next three tracks are named after orishas: Oyá, the Goddess of death and rebirth, Oshún, the Goddess of river water and beauty, and Yemayá, the Goddess of women and motherhood. Dayme Arocena is a famous choir director and although her voice alone already seems to encompass all the vocal ranges within a choir, she has also invited other singers who share her religion to join her on this album. The arrangements by pianist Jorge Luis Lagarza Pérez are perfect examples of contemporary Cuban jazz. Midway through Sonocardiogram, the sacred drums battle it out to conclude the ceremony in Interludio. In contrast, the second part of the album is more profane. Although the drums rise up here and there the ballads dominate, the vocals are reminiscent of American soul and the arrangements are funkier. With the help of English DJ and fan of Cuban culture Gilles Peterson, whose record label Brownswood released this album, Dayme Arocena’s sound remains closely connected to her roots and beliefs, showcasing her unmistakeable passion for music that touches the mind, body and soul. © Benjamin MiNiMuM/Qobuz

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.

Lhasa, An Unforgettable Shooting Star

With only three studio albums, one live album and three international tours, Lhasa de Sela left a unique mark in the history of modern popular music. “La Llorona”, “The Living Road” and “Lhasa” are distinct and accomplished works, revealing a strange yet familiar world, halfway between dreams and reality. Her light/dark songs carry the genuine emotions of an artist whose sensitive singing offers a pact of intimate complicity with the listener. Lhasa de Sela’s life contains all the ingredients for a legend, all the steps of a novel, all the emotions of a beautiful and overwhelming story.

David Byrne, a burgeoning mind

He was the leader of the Talking Heads, he recorded punk funk and South-American music, republished gems of world music, spent countless hours cycling through large cities throughout the world, and dabbled in dozens of other activities. What is truly going on in David Byrne’s head?
