An exclusive London performance by acclaimed international singer Natacha Atlas playing material from her latest CD ‘Strange Days’ and previewing new material. Natacha who featured in September’s Vogue Arabia is between worlds - recording for a Hollywood film and appearing in contemporary dance extravaganzas with her latest marriage of styles - jazz and the mystique of the Middle East.

"Atlas delivers a refined musical experience, one that encourages revealing in the most meditative parts of the human imagination."

DownBeat Magazine

Natacha Atlas is an internationally-acclaimed artist with one of the world’s most distinctive voices. Long known for synthesising western and middle eastern vocal traditions with mind-blowing dexterity, Natacha’s latest work sees her push vocal and musical boundaries even further by effortlessly weaving jazz traditions into her already unique blend.

It is thus unsurprising that Natacha’s output is as rich as it is diverse. In the past, she has worked with Peter Gabriel, Nitin Sawhney, Nigel Kennedy, Indigo Girls, Jean-Michel Jarre, and Ibrahim Maalouf, to name but a few, while, most recently, Natacha has been collaborating with the likes of Omar Sosa and Paolo Fresu, whilst co-composing (with frequent collaborator Samy Bishai) the score for Herve Koubi’s 2019 contemporary dance creation “Odyssey".

Over the years, Natacha’s exceptional talent has been repeatedly recognised by her peers and fans alike in the form of a host of music awards (incl. a French ‘Victoire’) along with numerous invitations to be the star vocalist at major events (such as the Millennium concert at the pyramids in Egypt in 2000 with Jean-Michel Jarre) and to appear on the scores and soundtracks of numerous Hollywood blockbusters, incl. Sex & the City 2The HulkKingdom of Heaven, Brick Lane and Sahara.
