Madonna is a music and dance artist who needs no introduction. Seven letters, no last name, yet a powerful brand. Almost from the time she started her career in 1982 with her first single “Everybody” and her debut album Madonna, the talented singer and dancer rose to fame in the US first and only two years later worldwide after the release of her second album Like a Virgin.

Enigma – Electronic music meets Gregorian Chants

Enigma first caught my attention because of the Gregorian chants they integrated into their music, especially on their third album Le Roi est Mort, released in 1996. But I have to admit that my favorite CD remains McMxc A.D. in which they succeeded in combining electronic music, electrical guitars and Gregorian chants!
Rather than a band, Enigma is a musical project that mixed electronic music with traditional elements from the beginning. Imagine a time when the music world just got used to synthesizer beats!
