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

Lhasa, An Unforgettable Shooting Star

With only three studio albums, one live album and three international tours, “Lhasa” de Sela still made her unique mark on contemporary popular music. “La Llorona”, “The Living Road” and “Lhasa” are all accomplished works in their own right and open the door to a strange yet familiar world, halfway between dream and reality. Full of both light and darkness, these songs are imbued with the genuine feelings of an artist whose heartfelt vocals reach out and pull the listener in, creating an intimate relationship with the audience. Looking back at the life of “Lhasa” de Sela, the makings of a legend are visible like chapters in a novel, complete with all the emotion that comes with a beautiful but heartbreaking storyline.

Flamenco: The Unending Dance & Unwavering Song

On November 16th 2010, UNESCO officially recognised flamenco as a universal form of art by inscribing it on the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. The United Nations gave cante jondo (the deep, primitive singing of flamenco) a contemporary stature, exceeding its historical and ethnic origins.

Santana: The Tijuana Lizard
