Since her arrival in France at the end of the 90s fleeing Algerian fundamentalism, Souad Massi has become the ambassador on both sides of the Mediterranean not only for a young generation thirsty for freedom but also for women repressed by macho domination. Carried for a long time by a major label, her folk rock infused with both North African and Western traditions, along with her bold and miraculous singing have been round the world. Her return after a few years under the radar coincides with the time her country is rising up against the rigid diktats of a corrupt one-party government. Her voice, her charm and her message have not been weakened. Between a woody blueprint, intoxicating chaabi music and silky pop, she covers anger, love, the intimate and the melancholic. Her lyrics are penned either by herself or by the Cairo native Nader Abdellah (Salam, with music from Khaled Izz), François Mallet-Joris (Pays Natal, composed by Marie-Paul Belle) or by Magyd Cherfi on the final track Je Chante. The perfect balance of levity and depth, Oumniya (“my wish”) should put Souad Massi in her rightful place: at the forefront of the scene. © Benjamin MiNiMuM/Qobuz

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.

Women Composers: A Secret History

From Sappho of Mytilene to Kaija Saariaho, music history has been marked by female figures who “dared” to write music. Is creation a male privilege? Our sound museum does hold more well-known and recognised male than female composers. Yet their works are no less exciting and there is absolutely no reason for them to play second fiddle, or be ignored altogether. Below, you’ll find a defence and illustration of female composition works through eleven musical portraits.

Santana: The Tijuana Lizard

Santana’s CV boasts an iconic Woodstock performance, a dozen Grammy Awards, millions of record sales (thanks to his metamorphosis into a Latin pop star), and more and more prestigious collaborations... He’s one of those artists that everyone loves - peers, public and critics alike. Here, we explore the life of an accomplished artist who is constantly renewing himself, much like a lizard shedding its skin.
