Atlas Soul is a band performing original music that celebrates and bridges Afro-Mediterranean melodies & grooves with Jazz, poetry, hip hop & Funk thus naturally creating music one could describe as Maghrebian-Funk, Rock’n Raï and Chaâbi-Jazz.

Expect a powerful, energetic & tight live performance guarantied to move any audience!  They have played countless prestigious venues both here and abroad such as The Montreal Jazz Festival, The Kennedy Center, The Festival International de Louisiane, Africa Nights Festival etc..  “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 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” Banning Eyre – Afropop Worldwide  Atlas Soul sings and rap in English, French, Arabic and Hebrew.

The lyrics touch a wide variety of subjects such as love, happiness, music but also racism, oppression and poverty.  They have won or placed 3 times the Independent Music Awards, the Billboard World Song, The Unisong International, Global Rhythm Magazine, Just Plain Folks Music Awards, Boston Music Awards and many more..  “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  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
