In the early 2010s, at the age of 50, Suzanne Vega decided to look back on her prosperous career by revisiting her greatest hits in an acoustic style. She and her record company wanted to incorporate as many songs as possible, so they decided to release four albums under the following themes: Songs of Family; Peoples, Places & Things; States of Being; and Love Songs. This throwback was followed by a world tour in which the Californian singer was accompanied by just one guitarist. This present album could easily be described as a ‘best of a best of’. The acoustic vibe is a natural fit for Suzanne Vega's intimate, hushed style, whose often folk-inspired songs delicately describe the small moments in life. Her hit ‘Tom's Diner’ is notably absent, though fans will be pleased to rediscover ‘Luka’, the other hit from her 1987 album Solitude Standing (1987). While some tracks remain faithful to their original versions (‘Freeze Tag’, ‘Song of Sand’), others stray far, acquiring a new sense of depth after undergoing their acoustic transformation (‘Wooden Horse’, ‘Anniversary’). Suzanne Vega has never been so close to her audience, and these intimate songs highlight her love of folk music and contemporary poetry. ©Nicolas Magenham/Qobuz

Tuareg Blues: The Rock Oasis

Since the Tuareg group Tinariwen released their first official album in 2002, entitled “The Radio Tisdas Sessions”, their electric, guitar-soaked music has become its own 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, as Western rockers continue to be drawn towards this poetic music emanating from the sand dunes and rocky expanses.

Outlaw Country: Nashville Uprising

In the early 1970’s, a group of musicians from Nashville radically challenged the city’s musical tradition, its codes, its smooth productions and its clichés. With Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson and a few other long-haired rebels who were deeply influenced by rock and roll, this new trend defied country music’s conservatism.

Americana, America Through its Roots

The title may sound like a nebulous marketing ploy, and yet for about twenty years, Americana had been summarizing this blend of rock, country, blues and rhythm ‘n’ blues. And like in every big family, you’ll find almost every type of person: the rebellious daughter, the cultivated uncle, the agitated father, the driven cousin, etc.
