5.0 out of 5 stars Double the pleasure 8 Aug 2003
Format:Audio CD
Transglobal Underground are the pioneers of world music fused with western technology. Backpacking serves up a tasty dish of various works taken from predecessing albums. Natacha Atlas shines with the best female vocals I personally have ever heard. Head - nodding grooves blend with spicy tablas and timbalas to produce the most innovative mix of cultural sounds to take you on a magic carpet ride to far off places where every day is a turkish delight.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best 28 Jun 2000
By Clay Strange - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Every CD transglobal underground releases is in my opinion, pure perfection. The idea of mixing traditional music with techno is the most incredible thing I've ever come upon. This CD is everything the others are and more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Drinking on the graves of our ancestors 14 Oct 2007
By Bas Van Der Veen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I first came across Transglobal through Natacha Atlas. After a long trip through the Middle East the local music had gripped me. Diaspora was just released and Natacha performed at the Tilburg Festival Mundial. It was a revelation and for years I have regularly visited her concerts, hoping for some belly dancing as well ;-). Some time after Tilburg my neighbour in my student home was playing her cd and he also had the cd Dream of 100 Nation, on which Natacha sings some of her best songs.

I am writing this review in a most fitting place, for Tbilisi is renowned for its hospitality, diversity and tolerance. You can find churches, synagogues and mosques here with a mix of Turkish, Russian and Persian influences. Transglobal Underground could provide the ultimate soundtrack for a Georgian supra on a hot summer evening.

The title of my review reveres to the Georgian habit of eating and drinking on the graves of their ancestors at Easter. You can find tables and seats at every cemetery here. TGU itself is not dead yet, check out [...]

Goran Bregovic Music for Films, Bucovina Club Bucovina Club, Savina Yannatou Mediterranea: Songs of the Mediterranean and Kardes Turkuler Dogu (to name a few of my favorites) are more traditional in their music, but they share with TGU the refusal of accepting of political borders or limits on human creativity, showing that music is capable of uniting people across nations and continents.

3.0 out of 5 stars An ok CD 14 May 2012
By C. O'driscoll - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I was a little disappointed in this CD because it was not quite as global as I had hoped. Still, it is good to listen to as I work in my studio, so I cannot complain too much.
