“It’s the diversity in America that makes the music so powerful!”. Rhiannon Giddens, Gaelic first name, white father, mother of black and Native American (Occaneechi) ancestry, embodies the melting pot that is North American culture. The coloratura soprano that delivers an impenetrable folk, soul, blues, and bluegrass voice more than an opera one, has released her third record. She was discovered by the Coen brothers (Inside Llewyn Devis alongside Elvis Costello) and has collaborated with T-Bone Burnett. She has passed by Carolina Chocolate Drops and the White House and is the author of two acclaimed solo albums and one as Our Native Daughters (with Leyla McCalla, Allison Russell and Amythyst Kiah). The forty-year-old has, indeed, already done a lot.

In collaboration with multi-instrumentalist Francesco Turrisi and produced by the excellent Joe Henry in 5 days in Dublin, There Is No Other combines original compositions with covers of classics, over a background of traditional Arabic music with Celtic and Italian influences. Within, one can find I’m Gonna Write Me A Letter by Ola Belle Reed, Brown Baby by the activist Oscar Brown Jr, or (from another genre) the Pizzica di San Vito or the Black Swan by Menotti. A diverse success. – Charlotte Saintoin
