Description

Brand new album from the acclaimed lead vocalist of Jah Wobble's Invaders of the Heart and Transglobal Underground. Natacha Atlas comes together with Orchestra de Chambre de Toulouse fo her first live album and the first time her repertoire has been performed with classical arrangements. Natacha Atlas has never been daunted by the prospect of trying something different, which is why her latest release will come as no surprise to her many ardent fans and followers. Last year, at the request of Jean-Laurent Paolini (the director of the prestigious Theatre National de Toulouse), Atlas and her band performed a mix of new, previously unreleased songs alongside tracks from her last album, Mounqaliba with the Orchestre de Chambre de Toulouse. With the show selling out 6 months in advance, the decision was made to record the performance and Atlas's long-time friend, the internationally-famed designer, Christian Louboutin, elected to be the executive producer. The result is Live in Toulouse. This album showcases the natural evolution of one of the world's most mesmerising and unique voices, continuing Atlas's incomparable practice of breaking down cultural and musical barriers. In this most recent project, Atlas effortlessly integrates a heady mix of jazz musicians, Arabic folkloric musicians and a full Western orchestra, moving fluidly between classical Western harmonies and traditional Eastern modalities to give rise to a wholly ground-breaking musical experience.
