After two highly acclaimed string driven, predominantly acoustic projects, Natacha Atlas returns to the Global Dance-floor with the Mounqaliba 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.

You have probably gathered from the title that this post isn’t going to be upbeat.I recently found out that DJ/producer – Cheb I Sabbah has been diagnosed with stage 4 stomach cancer. Unfortunately the cancer has spread to his liver and now his left lung which means its a race against time.
Due to ill health Chebji has had to cancel many shows which has resulted in mounting medical bills. We, as friends, fans and appreciators of his talents need to help raise funds and spread the word to help Chebji, a person who has given us so many musical delights throughout the years.
Chebji’s contribution to music speaks for itself, his unyielding faith in the vedic and abrahamic traditions has led him to produce fabulous albums such as Krishna Lila, Shri Druga and of course Devotion. Allowing him pay his respects to the original source by meshing hard edge electronica with sacred spiritual mantras enhancing the listening experience.
So please please visit the below link, dig deep and make a d0nation, however big or small it will make a massive difference.
