There is a sort of hereditary line of sisterhood, charisma and self-destruction that links the great blueswomen from the past century to the present.

Magnetic and violent primadonnas, from Bessie Smith to Janis Joplin passing through Billie Holiday and Etta James, the voice queens that conquered the public with the mystery of their vocal chords, capable of spells that can save or curse.

Modern Bacchantes, alcoholics, sensual, brutal - they used the blunt yet poetic language born among the slaves in cotton plantations and sang about the most tragic aspects of our existence without ever being sentimentalist.

Written by Magdalena Barile
