A film by Fleur Albert
From a concert in St Nazaire to the original hubbub of Cairo, this film uses a myriad of fragments and scenes to compose a personal, musical portrait of the great songstress of the sands, Natacha Atlas.

From one migration to another, a single journey, a single melancholic reverie is forged between East and West. On the trail of a pop rose. Musically and geographically, Natacha Atlas has always been an itinerant. The Anglo-Egyptian singer has spent more than a decade fusing electronic beats with North African and Arabic music, finding links between seemingly disparate musical genres, exploring new and different sonic settings and working with a wealth of like-minded collaborators from across the world along
the way. The resulting body of work is both a triumph of true multiculturalism and a testament to the richness and accessibility of Arabic culture. It is, indeed, an oeuvre unlike any other. Presiding over it all, of course, is Atlas’s extraordinary voice. Meltingly sensuous and gloriously passionate, delicate with melisma
and microtones, it bridges Middle Eastern and Western styles with instinctive ease.
