Richard Bona's Afro-Cuban heritage is at the heart of his latest album: Heritage. Appearing on Quincy Jones' label Qwest records, the album was created by the Cameroonian from Douala and his band Mandekan Cubano. Lying somewhere between traditional music and Afro-Cuban jazz, Richard Bona and his accomplices subtly blend together torrid grooves and melancholy ballads. Heritage draws its inspiration from the long history of Mandekan speaking slaves from West Africa, who were brought to Cuba with their music and traditions. Initially, the pulsations of social clubs known as Cabildos helped to preserve and perpetuate cultural myths to local Cubans as well as immigrants from Spain, through its unique forms of dance, music, ritual and oral tradition. Today it's thanks to the dazzling beat of global music that Bona, regarded by the greats as a bass genius, never stops shining far and wide.

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.

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?
