Just a few days before the release of her new album "El Mal Querer", I had the opportunity to interview Rosalía in Madrid. The location: a lavish salon in a XVI century palace on Calle Huertas, in the historic district. In this rare conversation in English, Rosalía talks about the influence of flamenco giant Camarón de la Isla; the making of her new album; and the many years of hard work she's put in, to achieve her dreams.

Music by the Corsican vocal ensemble, A Filetta; two singer-songwriters from Palestine, Sana Moussa and Haya Zaatry; and The Gurdjieff Ensemble playing the music of Armenia’s renowned composer Komitas.

The new album by Mali’s Ballaké Sissoko & France’s Vincent Segal called “Musique de Nuit”. Daby Touré’s new record “Amonafi”. Ghana’s marimba player SK Kakraba and his new album “Songs of Paapieye”, and Mali’s legendary super band “Les Ambassadeurs”.
