Oriental Jazz

Natacha Atlas

| Ägypten, Frankreich

Zur Zeit leider nur auf Englisch

Born in Brussels of Anglo-Egyptian parentage, Atlas’s multi-cultural background and experiences have helped shape her trademark sound which seamlessly bridges musical and culture divides.
Exploding onto the scene in the early 1990s, Atlas rapidly gained widespread recognition for her successful pioneering meld of Western and Eastern musics, specifically, her use of cutting-edge electronic beats with Arabic melodies and instrumentation.
After several releases with Nation Records and a string of albums fronting the seminal Transglobal Underground, she debuted with Diaspora (1994). Atlas then followed with Gedida (Beggar's Banquet) which won the Victoire Award; the rest, as they say, is history.
Her last 2 albums, the critically-acclaimed Ana Hina (2007) and Mounqaliba (2010), have represented a radical evolution of Atlas's artistic horizons. On both, Atlas combines her hallmark synthesis of Western and Middle Eastern musical traditions and culture with classical and jazz influences and sounds. Indeed, on Mounqaliba, she pushed the boundaries further, producing an album lavishly orchestrated by her long-time collaborator Samy Bishai.
In addition to her own projects, Atlas has worked extensively with an eclectic group of distinguished artists across a wide variety of musical genres including: pop (Peter Gabriel, Sinead O'Connor, Indigo Girls, and Jean-Michel Jarre); classical (Nigel Kennedy, Jocelyn Pook); jazz (Nigel Kennedy); film scores (Danny Elfman, Clint Mansell, David Arnold, Harry Gregson-Williams, Rachel Portman); and world music (Nitin Sawhney, Transglobal Underground, Talvin Singh).
Atlas’s distinctive voice has also featured on a wide number of soundtracks and scores for both films and video games, including Kingdom of Heaven (2005), The Hulk (2003), Sex and the City 2 (2010), Stargate (1994), The Truth About Charlie (2002), The World Is Not Enough (1999), Die Another Day (2002), Brick Lane (2007), Sahara (2005), I Can't Think Straight (2008), La Fille Sur Le Pont (1999), Whatever Lola Wants (2007), Bin-Jip (a.k.a. 3-Iron,  English title) (2004); and Heavenly Sword (2007); Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories (2005); Project Gotham Racing 4 (2007).  Most recently, her track “Adam’s Lullaby’ was used in The Tunisian Tourist Board’s European television advertising campaign.
2013 saw Atlas co-compose – with Bishai - the music for ballet Les Nuits (very loosely inspired by One Thousand and One Nights) for the internationally-renowned French choreographer, Angelin Preljocaj.  The ballet continues to tour internationally until 2015. 
Natacha recently scored big with having 2 music trailer cues she had done with LA based composers, Hi-Finesse used in the forthcoming Luc Bresson film, ‘Lucy’ and Lionsgate Studios film,  ‘Divergent’ starring Kate Winslet.  With a new studio in the pipeline and continuing work with film & TV composers in LA, 2014 sets to be another exciting year for Atlas.

In late October 2015 Atlas released her album " Myriad Road" by M'Ister Productions/Universal Decca which was co-written and produced by the illustrious jazz musician Ibrahim Maalouf.
