    Khaled

    Year: 2012

    Runtime: 1 hr 14 min

    «Raï» is a folk music form in Algeria. The word means opinion or view, a pointed message to the world. Khaled experienced the danger of spreading that message when the Islamists took over the country in 1986. He was forced to flee at the age of just 26. Khaled continued to develop his music in France. He became a superstar and an important symbol in his homeland, although he was forbidden to perform there. Khaled wants to entertain and to be popular. He says what he thinks and he plays raï the way he wants to, electronically, but also with traditional instruments, western and yet still Maghrebian, in different languages, but most
    of all with a message that is loud and clear.

    Antonello Venditti

    Year: 2012

    Runtime: 1 hr 25 min

    Antonello Venditti (born 8 March 1949) is an Italian singer-songwriter who became famous in the 1970s for the social themes of his songs.
    Antonello Venditti was born in Rome, the son of Vincenzino Italo from Campolieto Molise, deputy-prefect in Rome.
    He studied piano in his youth and made his debut in the music world in the early 1970s at the Folkstudio of Rome, together with singers like Francesco De Gregori and Giorgio Lo Cascio. In duo with the former he released in 1972 his first LP, Theorius Campus. The LP scored little success, but Venditti at least made himself noted for the strength of his vocal qualities and for his attention to social issues, evidenced by pieces like Sora Rosa which is sung in Roman dialect. Also in dialect was Roma Capoccia, a declaration of love for his city, which later became one of his most famous songs. Curiously, Venditti refused to sing it for several years, as he considered it not politically or socially "engaged" enough.

    this album has been at the top of the charts for many weeks. It shows that even superstars have hard times, like Katie Melua with her burnout. Her art was making this crisis into a source of creativity by turning it into new songs. This great music dynamic speaks for the quality of her new works. She mixes pop, jazz and folk intuitively and adeptly, her songs are heartfelt, natural and unpretentious. Pop and poetry don’t get any closer than this - as you will see at this evening at AVO SESSION Basel.

    Madredeus

    Year: 2012

    Runtime: 60 min

    The flight distance between Basel and Lisbon is 1672 kilometres, but the distance between the Basel drums and Portuguese fado could be measured in light years. Fado, the music of lower Lisbon, is based on a feeling that the German language cannot even name. Since 1986, Madredeus have spearheaded the long tradition of fado and a woman’s voice was always at the centre, now it is the voice of Beatrix Nunes. The mastermind of the band, guitarist Pedro Ayres

    Magalhães, helps to ensure the future of fado with his compositions, which are not museum pieces, but rather a reflection of the realities of Lisbon in 2012. They perform some classic works as well as new songs at AVO SESSION.
