Without the pianist Bebo Valdés and the trumpet player Chico O'Farrill, Afro-Cuban music and jazz would be quite different. Their way of playing, their compositions and their arrangements for big-bands have influenced hordes of musicians. Their story is also a reflection of the solid artistic links unifying Cuba and the United States, far away from the diplomatic and politic quarrels… Here, their sons Chucho Valdés and Arturo O'Farrill (two musical giants as well) celebrate this legacy. With Familia: Tribute To Bebo And Chico, the two pianists take care to ensure that this celebration doesn’t smell like mothballs. On the contrary! They take the Afro-Cuban jazz tradition to rather enjoyable new harmonic and rhythmic horizons. The level of the other members of the two families is really astonishing: the pianist Leyanis Valdés, the drummers Jessie Valdés and Adam O'Farrill and the trumpet player Zack O'Farrill all offer virtuoso performances, mixing their grandfathers’ music with original compositions. And to highlight even more the open-mindedness of these brilliant protagonists, Familia: Tribute To Bebo And Chico ends on a title that welcomes the sitarist Anoushka Shankar! In short, this album is a pure wonder. © MZ/Qobuz

Reggaeton in 10 Albums

A combination of Jamaican dancehall, American hip-hop, Caribbean rhythms and Spanish wit, reggaeton has, since its birth in the early 90s, shaken the world of pop music time and time again. From DJ Playero’s first mixtapes to Daddy Yankee’s “Barrio Fino” and Don Chezina’s “Tra-Tra-Tra, Puerto Rican musicians and their Colombian counterparts in Medellin have done their utmost to take over the world. In the last decade, they have done just that thanks to artists such as Luis Fonsi, J. Balvin and Bad Bunny. Read on for 10 of the genre’s most important albums. Reggaeton won’t be going anywhere any time soon.

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.
