Atlas Soul

Event Date: 
Saturday, September 21, 2013 - 7:30pm

Atlas Soul is a multiple awards winning band performing original music that celebrate and blend spicy hot Afro-Mediterranean melodies/grooves with a generous dose of jazz, rock and funk! Burning live performances is their trade mark!

They have played countless major venues such as The Montreal Jazz Festival, The Kennedy Center, The Festival International de Louisiane, the Boston Globe jazz Festival etc. They regularly sell out shows in the Boston area and beyond.

Atlas Soul sings in French, Italian, Arabic, Hebrew and English, making it a truly cross-cultural-music-experience. The lyrics speak of love, ecology, oppression, happiness, immigration, poverty, spicy food...

"What hits hardest about Atlas Soul's sound is the natural funk of North African music and also powerful vocals, which span fluid, passionate Gnawa melodies and husky Rai hooks. There is great wisdom in a world-music outfit that embraces divergent genres (but not so many that the sound loses its identity)." - Banning Eyre, NPR Afrobeat Worldwide   Artist Official Website Audio/Video Clips
