Effortless cross-cultural blend with enticing results!

The hallmark of the North African musical tradition is openness to others. Musicians from this culture effortlessly blend centuries-old rhythms, instruments and melodic concepts with modern ideas and innovations from the world over, creating a constantly changing panorama of styles. Atlas Soul?s musicians exemplify this spirit. In their recordings and their live performance the group serves up a tantalizing stew of musical styles. The delighted listener hears the influences of jazz, Latin, flamenco, French hip-hop and the traditional North African music, all blended with the deft and sure hand of a master chef. Great vocals top off the warm and savory instrumental mix

Mike Crager

"Atlas Soul's blend of jazz, funk and Middle-Eastern/Arabic grooves is a fascinating sonic stew that will catch any listener's ear. This is their second appearance on our CD's compilation. We like'em, and you will too".
Global Rhythm Magazine


?What hits hardest about Atlas Soul?s sound is the natural funk of North African music and also powerful vocals, which span fluid, passionate Gnawa melodies and husky Ra? hooks. There is great wisdom in a world-music outfit that embraces divergent genres (but not so many that the sound loses its identity)" Banning Eyre. The Phoenix
