Even from its detached, lonesome opening, Maria Chiara Argirò's latest record, Forest City, exudes a hopeful imagination. Filled with sweeping electronic compositions, rich with melodic muscle, and marked by delicate atmospheric textures, Forest City captures the vivid dichotomy of sprawling urban cityscapes meeting the organic beating-hum of nature's cyclical beginnings and endings. Argirò is a prolific creative collaborator and live performer whose previous projects span a handful of solo releases, touring with post-punk rockers These New Puritans, a lush jazz hybrid record with guitarist Jamie Leeming (2020's Flow), and an ethereal collaboration with London jazz percussionist Riccardo Chiaberta (2021's "Mahi Mahi"). In Forest City, Argirò returns to her own. It's an excursion of her collective experiences liberated through the structureless sonic boundaries of electronica and jazz harmonics. On "Home," a nodding hum is enveloped through tweaked and chopped oscillating arpeggios. "Greenarp" finds Argirò's airy, atmospheric vocals over pillowy synthesizers, leaving the listener surrounded in a quaint solace of meditative relief. Club-minded "Bonsai" radiates as the album's centerpiece. Propulsive percussive patterns and sliced vocal hums canter underneath luscious cascading waves of opulent sonic bliss—each moment extending and teeming with organic energy. A singular muted horn pierces the silence at the pinnacle of this track, clearing room for a satisfying conclusion of dissipating ambient energy. With a brilliant kaleidoscopic fusion of jazz textures and spatially-bound electronica, Argirò elevates and transports the listener to a place eerily similar, but profoundly distinct, from our world. Forest City's curious spirit bubbles with a sanguine glow and invites the listener to dive deep into its glistening sonic sea. © William Card/Qobuz

Tango: Sounds of the Río de la Plata

Rooted in dance and eventually becoming its very own artistic movement, the history of tango is an epic one; and its future truly looks limitless. A musical genre with hybrid origins, it remains one of the most incredible creations to come out of Río de la Plata. “It’s the only thing we don’t ask Europe for its opinion on,” wrote Argentina’s Macedonio Fernández, the man that young Jorge Luis Borges admired “to the point of devout and passionate plagiarism.” A number of coincidences in the late 19th century gave rise to this style of music. As musicologist Carlos Vega said: "no one really tried to create tango." And yet, here it is; complete with its own traditions and innovations, as well as its own golden age, ill-fated artists, myths and rituals.

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.

Ray Charles, a Stylist Under the Influence

A founding father of soul, whose career spanned half a century, Ray Charles cannot be reduced to a handful of famous hits. He is above all the master of the high-end musical crossover that makes an art of mixing genres, approaching one to better embrace the other. Ray Charles secularised gospel, enriched the blues, played jazz, sang country and approached rock'n'roll. Let's take a look back at his unique style based on the five listed here.
