Natacha Atlas Bush Hall

Natacha Atlas: Born in Brussels of Anglo-Egyptian parentage, singer and world music star, Natacha Atlas’s multi-cultural background has helped shape her trademark sound which seamlessly bridges musical and cultural divides. Exploding onto the scene in the early 1990s, Atlas rapidly gained widespread recognition for her pioneering meld of Western and Eastern music, specifically her use of cutting-edge electronic beats with Arabic melodies and instrumentation. During this special concert, Atals will be presenting new material from a forthcoming album - set for release in September 2018 - as well as works from her excellent recent album, Myriad Road, a breathtakingly seamless mixture of contemporary jazz and Arabic vocals that she created with star French trumpeter Ibrahim Maalouf. She will be supported by a superb band featuring pianist Alcyona Mick, bassist Davide Mantovani and the brilliant Asaf Sirkis on drums, while Hayden Powell stands in for Maalouf. Taking place on 8 February, 2018 at the Bush Hall, 310 Uxbridge Road, Shepherd's Bush, London W12 7LJ.
