As a bellydancer, I am no stranger to Ms. Atlas's sultry tones and the wonderful haunting oud and nay....not forgetting the pulsing of the percussion instruments which are essential to the dance.
In this album Natacha goes from the sublime Mon Amie the Rose to the tabla beats of mahlabeya.
This album conjures up warm desert winds, harems, nomads, Ali Baba and the forty Thieves, spice markets,veils and coin belts. An A to Z of Arabia, then just for good measure Natacha throws in One Brief Moment which sounds like a French-Morrocan caberet grande finale.
You don't need to be interested in bellydance to own this album, although I would say it helps. Natacha sings with such passion and intensity on some of the tracks you just can't help swirling and shimmying around the living room go on live... give it a try!

In this third album Natacha seems to go for a slightly more western, modern sound. It's okay, but for me she doesn't play to her strengths enough, like on previous albums "diaspora" & "halim" where her awesome voice shimmered accross warm sandswept arabian nights perhaps hundreds of years ago... But then again, this album does contain the song "The Righteous Path", what an awesome song - produces the effect I descibed above X 100.

This album is a bit more pop-orientated than some of Atlas's other albums. I feel it breaks less new ground than Halim, for example. However, it still features some very good songs, with infectious rhythms, wonderful vocals and nice orchestration. I would particularly pick out Mon Amie la Rose and Kifaya as excellent tracks.

A real coffee-pot blending of European (especially with her balads) and Eastern sounds. If you like music that inspires passion and involuntary hip-jigging -- Natasha does it nicely. Sexy lady, sexy music. All round fab.
