Irish producer Jacknife Lee found fame and fortune working for rock behemoths like U2, Snow Patrol and Kasabian. In 2019, his album The Jacknife Lee revealed another side to him, one that’s far more electronic, adventurous, and open to African voices (it features Kenyan rapper Muthoni Drummer Queen and Ghanaian Australian Genesis Owusu). Today, Lee further explores African music, producing the first international album by singer Rokia Koné. A huge star in her native Mali, she gained recognition in Europe in the mid-2010s with the women’s collective ‘The Amazon of Africa’. Like any good West African singer, she’s the owner of a raspy voice that’s full of unbridled power; the voice of a warrior unbeaten in battle. The Mandingo tradition is omnipresent throughout her fiery vocals (which are sung in her native language of Bambara) as well as in the arrangements and structures of her songs. Jacknife Lee offers her an exoskeleton, tailor-made for all terrains, to help her take her danceable tracks around the world. The production features bouncy percussion and mesmerising vocal rhythms. Rokia Koné’s music doesn’t lose any of its authenticity due to the electronic processing either: the singer is at the very centre of her album, an unstoppable force that’s undoubtedly heading straight into the future. © Stéphane Deschamps/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.

Bossa nova, the Eternal Wave

Since its creation in the late 1950s, Bossa-nova has become an indispensable part of Brazilian music. The style’s strong evocative power won over artists from all around the world and earned recognition for many first-rate musicians whose works are now seen as classics.

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.
