After two highly acclaimed string driven, predominantly acoustic projects, Natacha Atlas returns to the global dance floor with the Mounqaliba - Rising: The Remixes. Globally celebrated singer Natacha Atlas' latest release Mounqaliba was a decidedly acoustic affair, recorded with a 20-piece Turkish ensemble and a chamber orchestra & integrating western and Arabic styles. Mounqaliba (which means being in a state of reversal in classical Arabic) was a stunning set of original songs, evocative interludes, and a beautiful version of Nick Drake's classic 'Riverman.'
From her days singing with Transglobal Underground to her seminal solo releases, Natacha is acknowledged as a pioneer in fusing Middle Eastern and electronica styles. The Mounqaliba remixes find the vanguard of the global fusion world paying homage to one of the most distinctive and beautiful voices in modern music. Remixers like Beats Antique, Nickodemus & The Spy From Cairo, Cheb i Sabbah, Bombay Dub Orchestra, Syriana, David Starfire, Kaya Project and many more, take Natacha's latest opus into new directions ranging from lush ambient journeys to dynamic rhythmic explorations.
