ATLAS SOUL featuring Regie Gibson and Ali Amr

Event Date: 
Saturday, January 19, 2013 - 7:30pm

Atlas Soul is a band performing original music that celebrates and bridges Afro-Mediterranean rhythm and melodies with Jazz & Funk thus naturally creating a unique emotionally charged music one could describe as Maghrebian-Funk, Rap’n Raï and chaâbi-Jazz.  Expect a powerful, energetic & tight live performance guaranteed to move any audience!

This show will feature the gifted young Palestinian Quanunist and vocalist Ali Amr and the irresistible award winning poet Regie Gibson. They have played countless prestigious venues both here and abroad such as The Montreal Jazz Festival, The Kennedy Center, The Festival International de Louisiane, Montreal Africa Nights Festival, Boston Globe Jazz Festival etc..

Atlas Soul sings in French, Arabic, Hebrew and English. The lyrics speak of love, natural wonders, oppression, poverty, and of the melancholy of immigrants. They have won or placed 3 times at the Independent Music Awards as well as the Billboard World Song, The Unisong International, Global Rhythm Magazine, Just Plain Folks Music Awards, Boston Music Awards and many more..

Philosophically and politically, Atlas Soul hopes to inspire world peace through a fusion of music and culture that gets people to the dance floor.  Their motto is world-music-for-world-peace.

"Atlas Soul's blend of jazz, funk and African/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
