Great Voices

In 2010, NPR is going to do a recurring series about the world’s best vocalists. Of couse, that’s a highly subjective and ultimately crazy goal, but in the time being, they’ve got an interactive tool to help them pare the list down with biography, photos, and audio samples of 150 candidate vocalists. It’s been fun for me to play with and find new people to listen to, such as Charles Trenet (French pop) above and Chavela Vargas below (Mexican ranchera). Go play with it!
