Nayda is a new word which means to both get up and to party. It’s also the name adopted by a new generation of moroccan artists and musicians who showcase a contemporary cultural identity in which traditions are modernised and galvanised by outside influences. Bab L’Bluz are a great example. At the head of this Franco-Moroccan outfit is Yousra Mansour who has broken prejudice by adopting the rhythms and instrumentals of his Gnawa compatriots (until then only practiced by men) and addition rock’n’roll spirit, full of blues and various other influences (chaâbi, funk, Mauritian Hassani, Berber music, and psychedelia). Brandishing his little guembri awicha like an electric guitar, she sings, in traditional Arabic, vernacular Darija and English, about contemporary life, social issues, the people of Africa as well as uplifting anthems. At her side, is producer Brice Bottin who uses the guembri lute like a bass which works as a foundation for the other instruments. Flutes, iron krakeb castanets, drums, tablas, single-stringed viol rebabs and ambient loops spur on a sense of ecstasy and broaden horizons. Their compositions vie to be most original and of eclectic coherence, their cover of Waydelel by the late Mauritian divi Dimi Mint Abba bridges the past and the future. A future which, when listening to Nayda, is already here. © Benjamin MiNiMuM/Qobuz

Betty Davis, The Funk Panther

Without her, there would be no Macy Gray, Erykah Badu, Amy Winehouse or Janelle Monáe! Despite having disappeared from the music scene for years, Betty Davis remains a pioneer of feline soul sisters. The ultimate funk goddess. She also brought electricity to a certain Miles Davis who she would go on to marry, if only for a short while. But who are you Betty?

Let’s Head for Cape Verde

Ever since the Portuguese annexed this collection of desert islands in the 15th century to make it a slave trade hub, the Black and Portuguese populations have mixed over time to give birth to a brand new language and brand new music—each island more or less developing its own style—, transforming the Cape Verdean dry lands into a bottomless talent pool.

Brigitte Bardot, singing in the sun

With the release of François Bagnaud and Dominique Choulant’s book “Moi je joue”, we’ve taken the opportunity to dive in to Brigitte Bardot’s singing career. From the sweet idleness of La Madrague to the brazen freedom of Harley Davidson, Bardot has embodied a multi-faceted French pop music.
