Bolero Records Proudly presents...

by Christine Atallah & The Bassalindos

Release Date: June 27, 2006

ESCAPADES, the debut album: Lush and appealing multi-lingual exotic world pop in five languages with tasty Arabic and jazz flavors and sizzling Latin spice. Christine could be described as a belly dancing Diva and her voice has also been compared to Fairuz, Souad Masi and Natacha Atlas. Based in Quebec, Canada Christine Atallah & The Bassalindos create and celebrate innovative Arabic-world pop with familiar elements of Eastern, Jazz and Latin music in a vital and exhilarating union of styles. Christine’s vocal prowess, inspiring poetry on plaintive Middle Eastern melodies delightfully merge with Western jazz scales and pop chords to soar and surprise. The melodies are unforgettable, the stories are touching and nuanced. The tempo is evocative of the percussion from hot countries and desert adventures. “ESCAPADES” has been described as feeling like a “voyage on a magic carpet ride.”
