While Los Tigres del Norte were widely celebrated for their 2011 live offering MTV Unplugged: Los Tigres del Norte and Friends, it had already been two years since they had released new studio material. Issued in 2010, El Rugido de Los Tigres del Norte was a compilation of previously released recordings from earlier in the 21st century. That makes Realidades the legendary norteño band's first set of brand-new songs in half a decade. It was worth the wait. The album's title is sobering, underscored by the set's devastating first single, "La Bala," about a seven-year-old child accidentally killed by a troubled teen. Musically, Los Tigres del Norte have remained very close to their tradition and root sound. They are uniquely gifted as storytellers when interpreting others' songs. This is reflected in "Historias de Ciudad" (on the two-disc Deluxe Edition), "La Jefa del Jefe," and the reading of Teodoro Bello's brilliant "El Gallo del Mojado." When assembled, the songs on Realidades offer portraits of life in North American cities from Harlem to Miami, from San Juan to Detroit, from Sinaloa to Los Angeles. But Los Tigres del Norte go deeper than sensationalist tabloid headlines, and their manner of playing and singing reveals the depth of emotion behind the narrative occurrences in the lyrics as they juxtapose narcocorridos and tableaus of gritty criminal life with notions of familial and romantic love -- as in the songs "Hoy le Hablo a Diario," "Así Es el Amor," the romantic "Era Diferente," and the heartbreaking "Necesitamos Conversar." As such, Realidades offers a 360-degree view of modern life that is beyond two-dimensional interpretations. The flavors of sweetness and bitterness, celebration and tragedy, and joy and heartache are all delivered with the soul and conviction that make Los Tigres del Norte so relevant to generation after generation.

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.

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?

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.
