By Anas Karkoukli on October 21, 2006
Format: Audio CD
Escapades is a magical journey imbued with sheer passion, emotional transparency, heartwarming poetry and introspective allegories; a musical fusion of dynamic sultry Latin rhythms and the astral modes of the orient, along with a dash of contemporary-ballade romance. The voice of Christine Atallah, a classically trained Opera singer, is profoundly enveloping and warm - as if a haven for the soul - She cleverly modulates her voice to compliment the contrasting nuances of the colorful rhythms of each of the album songs. The Escapades experience is distinctly pleasurable and unequivocally riveting. I simply love it.

Escapades is a debut album showcasing the talents Chistine Atallah and The Bassalindos. Captivating listeners with multi-lingual lyrics, exotic world pop with a colorful confluence of Arabic and jazz styles with an intervention of Latin, Escapades deftly compiles the vivid and creatively unique track-set of Taa, Ya Habibee; Idman; Desert Caravan; Me Voy; Fondre; M'Envoler; Salam; Emporte-Moi; Alrededor; 1001 Nights; Deconcentree; Susurro; and Nights Of Secrets. Escapades is very highly recommended as an artful compendium of unique and stylistic music for all cultural and diverse listeners.

Christine Atallah has captured so many different influences on this CD. Arabic influences, French influences, and even Spanish influences capture the world traveller. Hearing her CD is one thing, seeing her live is quite another. A great performer who loves her art, and it shows.

Christine Atallah who took to the bright lights early, made her first television appearance at the remarkable age of four years old. Born in a conservative Arabic family, she heeded her musical calling early and ran away from home at 17. Still a rebel today, she commands attention, speaks out for women and is a fascinating and erudite entertainer. This belly-dancing, sensual Diva of operatic training, is born for to perform, born to sing. Her voice has been compared to Natacha Atlas, Fairuz and Souad Masi with shades of Kate Bush. Her band- The Bassalindos, have been likened to Pink Martini and the Gypsy Kings, yet they sound like no one else. Christine had early training in classical singing and this led on a memorable onscreen performance in an Academy Award nominated film Jesus de Montreal.Christine took to the screen and sang for the soundtrack in three memorable movements from Pergolesi's Sabat Mater. The film swept the Genie Awards in Canada and was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Foreign Film. Until this day, people remember the hauntingly beautiful singing of the intense, dark haired beauty. Christine's vocal beauty, inspiring poetry and melodies on plaintive Middle Eastern keys collide beautifully with Western jazz scales and pop chords to soar and surprise. The instruments are exotic- the oud, the kanoun, mixed in atop acoustic jazz instruments weaved with catchy pop choruses and memorable melodies. In her original compositions, Christine�s sensuous voice highlights the unique blend of Arabic, Latin, jazz and pop facets into a rare gem. The music and lyrics are unforgettable and the tempi evocative of the percussion of desert countries, harem princesses, and moonlight nights on the dunes under the stars. You will be enchanted and want to embark on Escapdes time and again.Read more ›
