I did a quick cleanup of the Google Translate version of the article:
Leonard Cohen the Minstrel
Like medieval artists, Leonard Cohen tells stories with a beginning, a middle and an end. In many of his songs / poems, the chorus is also part of the story and not just a repetition needed for the melodic structure.
His deep bass voice is unmistakable and always gives a special stamp to his interpretations, in contrast to some other singers who have given a very different character to his compositions, such as Judy Collins, who made the song Suzanne a huge success in the sixties, with a folk style wholly of the time, and a very sweet voice. Or as happens with the "cover" done by the young English hip hop singer Plan B, who did not hesitate to remix a version of Suzanne which includes Cohen's voice, taken from one of his youthful recordings, and then use the melody as a musical base for his rap version.
Cases such as that of Plan B show two things: it is always good for a young person to take an interest in "classic" authors of quality because that represents, for the latter, the ability to reach new audiences. And the other is that poetry is able to subdue and seduce even a hardened and rebellious hip hop artist.
Here we share a version sung by the minstrel Cohen, who in the nineties was ordained a Zen Buddhist monk and a few years later was defrauded by his manager, who left him bankrupt.
