«Rolling Stone» magazine called him «One of the world’s biggest rock stars». Juanes mixes elements of South American music with western pop with the greatest of ease. His songs are a fearless attack on the civil war and the drug wars in his native country of Colombia. No wonder he has been honoured with 17 Grammys to date, for example for «Fijate Bien», which won the Latin Grammy for Best Rock Song. In 2012 he played his music unplugged with no electricity, just even more intensity. With her album «Today», Basel soul singer Nubya has made a radical departure and has come completely into her own.
