TIWA SAVAGE & SAM SMITH | Temptation
NIGERIA & UK | 2020
| “Temptation” is subtle and soft music with Afrobeats that give the song a magic touch. Perfect to chill out.
| Tiwa Savage is a Nigerian artist who began her career doing backup vocals for George Michael and Mary J. Blige. She participated without much success in the The X Factor in UK, no matter that she ended up being the first Afro-American woman wining MTV’s “Best African Act” award.

| Tiwa Savage sings in English and Yoruba (a dialect from Western Africa).
BILLY PRESTON & SYREETA | With you I’m born again
USA | 1979
| “With you I’m born again” was composed for Fast Break film. Its international success was so big that Motown (their music label) decided to publish a Billy Preston & Syreeta duet album.
| Billy Preston played with The Beatles many times, including their last and legendary Rooftop Concert. If you look at the left of Paul McCartney in the video, you’ll see him. He is the only artist credited on a Beatles song ever, in 1969: “Get Back” by “The Beatles with Billy Preston” (the vinyl is must have ).
| Syreeta Wright was a star in the 60s. She was married to Stevie Wonder for 18 months, composing universal tunes like “Signed, Sealed, Delivered (I’m Yours)”.
AMARAL | Sin ti no soy nada (I’m nothing without you)
SPAIN | 2002
| Amaral is a Spanish band that has released 8 albums (till 2020). It consists of Eva Amaral, whose surname gives name to the band, and Juan Aguirre.
| This tune is included in the “200 best Spanish pop-rock songs list”. The corresponding record, Estrella de mar (Starfish), is among the best Spanish rock albums ever, according to Rolling Stone.
| Shortly after meeting for the first time, Eva and Juan joined the Music Conservatory to improve their music theory skills. There were only free places left in the double bass course, so they decided to learn how to play it.
| They are still one of the most popular bands in Spanish music, selling out every single show they give, which by the way, are everything but relaxing
PAUL VAN DYK | Nothing but you
GERMANY | 2003
| Paul Van Dyk is a German DJ and producer, known worldwide for his trance music. “Nothing but you” is that kind of meditation music or the one that you use to concentrate while studying. I used to listen to it a lot in college, give it a try !
| At the beginning of 2016 Paul suffered a 20-foot fall at a concert. He injured his spine and was in a wheelchair for a time. Paul had to relearn how to walk, eat and speak. This experience inspired him in his album “From then on” . A masterpiece of trance music.
| If you have the chance, go to one of his shows, it’s worth it. He is energetic and calm at the same time and it transmits that feeling when he performs. Take a look at this recent show and you’ll understand: Paul Van Dyk Nature One Festival 2019
ADELE | Make you feel my love
UK | 2008
| Did you know that “Make You Feel My Love” is a song by Bob Dylan? It’s part of his 1997 album Time Out Of Mind .
| Adele dedicates this tune in all her shows to the memory of Amy Winehouse.
| Adele didn’t want to include a cover in her first album, 19, but her manager, who is a big Dylan fan, played the song for her. She was so thrilled that cried:
It really just summed up everything that I’d been trying to write in my songs.
| Adele ’21’ is the best-selling album of the 21st century. If you don’t have it yet, don’t hesitate, is quivering and relaxing music.
THE OH HELLOS | On the mountain tall
USA | 2017
| The Oh Hellos is an American band from South Texas that fosters an indie folk-rock style, is that all! Tyler and Maggie Heath created the band in 2001.
| Their high sensitivity touches everybody that hears them. If you didn’t know them, now it’s time. We share a mini-concert and a longer show so you can discover them. It’s the perfect mix between delicacy and intimacy, with happiness and euphoria. “On the mountain tall” is all relaxing music.
| In 2013 the Heath siblings reached out to friends and gathered together an ensemble of touring musicians the size of a circus, tumblers and all (quote from their Web site).
AIR | Cherry Blossom Girl
FRANCE | 2004
| Air is a French band, consisting of Nicolas Godin and Jean-Benoît Dunckel. Their strong point is electronic music, and I would say calming music as well.
| They have often collaborated with Sofia Coppola, like with the soundtrack of Sofia’s first film, “The Virgin Suicides” which we strongly recommend.
| “Cherry Blossom Girl” is a marvel that has hypnotized me since I was young. It begins with a vibraphone, a drum machine and an acoustic guitar, which give the song a magical halo; the synthesizer joins them later to take us straight to Paris.
Guess who sings the song, a woman or a man?
Well, surprisingly, the one who sings is a man, in fact, it is one of the members of the group, Jean-Benoît.
BELY BASARTE | Mariposas (Butterflies)
SPAIN | 2018

She was quite successful, reaching thousands of followers (500,000 by 2020). Her loyal fans knew that she used to upload a new YouTube video each Friday at 15:00 CET, so these accumulated tons of views just after being published.

| Bely dubbed all Belle songs in the Spanish version of Emma Watson’s The Beauty and the Beast.
