If you're looking for pure North African music, you may be disappointed by this. If, however, you're looking for an incredible fusion of North Africa and music from across the world, this is for you.
There are influences from European dance, but I do not find these intrusive, and I also detect other seasonings in the mix. Ya Weledi opens with what feels like a tango rhythm, while Gafsa is heart-wrenchingly, beautifully, melancholy. Over the top of it are Atlas's ravishing (mainly Arabic) lyrics.
This is one of those albums that I fell in love with at first hearing. It's still one of my favourites.

dedicated to the great Egyptian singer and musician Abdel Halim Hafez Solo album (1997) Natacha Atlas is born in Belgium on the 20th March 1964 of an English mother and a Jew Egyptian father. She lived during 8 years in the Moroccan suburbs of Brussels where she is immersed in an Arabian and Muslim culture. In 1972, her mother, divorced, took Natacha with her in England... When she is 16 years old, she involved herself in several musical projects and divided her time between England and Belgium. She worked in Arabian and Turkish night clubs as a singer and belly dancer (raq sharki)... She spent a brief stint in a Belgian salsa band called Mandanga. As she shuttled between Northampton and Brussels, however, she began to attract the attention of the Balearic beat crew ¡Loca!, and Jah Wobble, then assembling his Invaders of the heart. In 1991, both these projects bore fruit. Timbal by ¡Loca! started out as a track on Nation Records'Fuse two compilation and became a massive club hit, while Jah Wobble's Rising above Bedlam - five tracks of which Natacha co-wrote - attracted much critical acclaim and a Mercury Awards nomination. The success of Timbal cemented Natacha's relationship with the ground-breaking Nation Records label - label created in order to merge occidental dance music and Indian, Arabic and African musical styles - who introduced her to Transglobal Underground (it is rather a multi-cultural musicians collective that militates in favour of a mixing of all kinds of music than a simple musical group). At that time the group was enjoying Top 40 success with the anthemic Temple head.Read more ›

I wanted rawness - nights in the deserts - women of the night who sing in darkened taverns that we'll never find. I got a hint of that but on the whole, it conjures up a middle-eastern teenage pop-princess. The electronic drumbeat finally killed it for me. Great voice - haunting, mysterious, hinting the unknown - but its not raw and its not from the soul.
