Product Description

Product Description

Our product to treat is a regular product. There is not the imitation. From Japan by the surface mail because is sent out, take it until arrival as 7-14 day. Thank you for you seeing it.


At the very least, former Transglobal Underground singer Natacha Atlas has done the British alternative sector a huge favour by introducing the musical palette of the Middle East and North Africa into the mix. Ayeshteni, like Atlas¹s previous album, 1999's Gedida, will most certainly be bought by many people who would never otherwise listen to music from this part of the world, and that is most certainly a good thing. On its own merits, however, Ayeshteni is slightly less impressive. This is mostly because Atlas has failed to cart any influences in the other direction, and stuck rather too slavishly to a template that will be immediately familiar to anyone who has ever caught a taxi anywhere between Casablanca and Baghdad. As a result, the one overt attempt here at crossover--a cover of Screamin' Jay Hawkins' "I Put A Spell on You"--sounds rather forced and the rest blends all too readily into a single impenetrable and inseparable morass.

This, like many of Natacha Atlas' CDs, is NOT instantly accessible music to those seeking neatly parcelled recognisable tunes, so with an initial look-in it may appear a tad indistinguishable; beyond the "World"-tag novelty factor. BUT...on closer inspection it yields such sweeping riches as Soleil D'Egypte (with a cinematic Lawrence-Of-Arabia orchestral motif threading under Natacha's lusciously intoned French) & Rah (languidly sensuous belly-dancing tempo in more traditional vein) - bear in mind that many venerated singers in the Middle East will make circular songs like these last FOR AGES (longer than the obligatory 3 minutes), and so it's hypnotically swooping & sliding, percussive complexities are meant to be slowly savoured, not easily digested like a takeaway. It's true, stretching from Nicosia to Cairo, there always seems to be music similar to this creating an exotically arabesque, partially unnoticed, backdrop. But it is undoubtedly Natacha's effortlessly assured placing of her tasty vocal, and the cross-cultural aspects, which lifts this above the outlandish hubbub of take-or-leave bazaar music. Quite lovely! Keep it going Natacha....*smiles appreciatively*!

I first became aware of Natacha Atlas from her collaboration with Jean-Michel Jarre on C'est La Vie from his performance at the pyramids in GIza on Millenium Eve. I was awestruck by both what I saw, and what I heard. What a voice!
For me, this is Natacha Atlas's best album (and I do have all of them). The whole album works as a whole, with absolutely no filler and an awesome triptych of songs at the heart of the album in the form of Soleil D'Egypte, Ne Me Quitte Pas and Mish Fadilak. None of the electronic and fake sounding drum sounds from her earlier recordings are present and altogether more authentic sound is felt from the album.
The only bum note that could be mentioned is that of I Put A Spell On You, which comes across as an attempt to have a English vocal song to act as a crossover single. Given the chance though, this is a fantastic rendition of the song with a soaring vocal from Atlas.
If you're new to Ms Atlas and already have the best of (or even don't), I would heartily recommend this to anyone as a good starting point.

I've loved Natacha's voice since first hearing her on Jah Wobble's Rising Above Bedlam, though I've often felt her long players contain too much filler- and though this is definitely another one for chilling in the sun to, and retains the Transglobal sound (which can sound a bit irrelevant to an electronic / dance music fan's ears), it stays crisp, inventive and focussed with tracks contrasting nicely right to the end.. out of the last 3 cds, this is the most accomplished / convincing marrying of contemporary production values with the songs & musicians. And those swooping vocals still hit the bullseye. She's great live too. Sorted!

Format: Audio CD
Natacha Atlas manages to weave Egyptian/Arabic music into a mesmerizing experience with her English version of Screamin' Joe Hawkins "I put a spell on you" and the beautiful French tune, "Ne Me Quitte Pas" ... It is her smokey, sultry, sexy voice which will definitely do the trick if by chance the exotic Arabic music and instruments should fail ... *not* likely to happen.

The traditional and modern instruments, the oud, the darbouka (percussion) and drums, occasionally the violin, viola or cello, qanun, along with the clarinet and guitar create an exciting adventurous visit to an Arabic cafe ...The programming, back up vocals, and overall stylization of music is exceptional in creating a mood and feeling which is truly cultural and authentic.

The entire CD contains music and vocals which capture the listener's attention and captivate for the entire playing time ... Take a look at the cover, Natacha's voice sounds as enticing as her extraordinairy beauty ... She has an outstanding ability to interpret the traditional cultural Arabic vocals and music into mainstream music. It is a most precious gift. Erika Borsos (pepper flower)
