Jean-Philippe Rameau

Jean-Philippe Rameau (25 September 1683 - 12 September 1764) was one of the most important French composers and music theorists of the Baroque era. He replaced Jean-Baptiste Lully as the dominant composer of French opera, and was attacked by those who preferred Lully's style. Rameau’s music is characterised by the exceptional technical knowledge of a composer who wanted above all to be renowned as a theorist of the art.

Hindi Zahra

Hindi Zahra is sounding like the musical child of Django Rheinhardt and Billie Holiday, the Paris-based Hindi is a captivating musician. Her song “Beautiful Tango” is a revelation—simple yet sophisticated, sparse yet emotive. It’s fresh even while it reverberates with history. This style continues in “Oursoul” and “Try.” A touch of hip-hop and soul influence, retaining the simple, downbeat understatement of her other songs while adding an almost ethereal quality.

Carte Blanche

There are at least two bands that go by the name Carte Blanche: 1) A collaboration of DJ Mehdi and Riton. 2) With their name taken from a french phrase meaning a license to do whatever the hell you want, you might initially expect Carte Blanche to be some sort of artsy, obscure, punk band. But the exact opposite is true. Richard (guitarist for Light Sleeper) and Dana (bassist for December Stars) balance sweet melodies with jangly guitar arpeggios and strumming.
