FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Atlas Soul is playing Joeʼs Pub in NYC July 18 at 9:30 PM
Monday June 22, 2009 (Boston, MA) – Atlas Soul - a cross-cultural music experience group - is
releasing their 2008 Independent Music Award finalist CD: Maktoub (destined) at Joeʼs Pub
Saturday July 18, 2009 at 9:30 PM. This is the third time that Atlas Soul placed as an IMA finalist or winners in the world-music/fusion category.
Bridging divides between Eastern and Western cultures, Atlas Soul delivers a cross-cultural experience in Spanish, French, Italian, Arabic, Hebrew and English. The lyrics speak of love, natural wonders, oppression, poverty, and of the melancholy of immigrants longing for their homelands.
Philosophically and politically, Atlas Soul hopes to inspire world peace through a fusion of music and culture that gets people to the dance floor.
"Atlas Soul's blend of jazz, funk and Middle-Eastern/Arabic grooves is a fascinating sonic stew that will catch any listener's
ear. This is their second appearance on our CD's compilation. We like'em, and you will too".
Global Rhythm Magazine
World Music journalist Banning Eyre (Afrobeat worldwide) writes:
“What hits hardest about Atlas Soulʼs sound is the natural funk of North African music and also powerful vocals, which span fluid, passionate Gnawa melodies and husky Raï hooks. There is great wisdom in a world-music outfit that embraces
divergent genres (but not so many that the sound loses its identity)"
Joeʼs Pub is located at 420 Lafayette Street, New York City.
