Support: Amy Swift
Heralded as one of the world’s most distinctive voices, Natacha Atlas has carved a path synthesising western and middle eastern vocal traditions with mind-blowing dexterity.
Over the years Natacha Atlas has worked with Peter Gabriel, Nitin Sawhney, Nigel Kennedy, Indigo Girls, Jean-Michel Jarre, and Ibrahim Maalouf, to name a few, while, most recently, Natacha has been collaborating with the likes of Omar Sosa and Paolo Fresu, whilst co-composing (with frequent collaborator Samy Bishai) the score for Herve Koubi’s 2019 contemporary dance creation ‘Odyssey’.
“Strange Days” (out in September 2019) is the stunning new album from Atlas, that is already being hailed within the industry as a game changer in its pioneering marriage of jazz and the mystique of Arabic vocals.
