Synopsis

The Trans-Global Underground diva wails in Arabic as her south London mates bring on the pagan beats. Atlas may eventually shrug at her North American sales, but this is more adventurous than Page & Plant's forays into middle eastern exotica and twice as authentic. --Jeff Bateman

CD Reviews

Natacha at her best!
soundsmith | seattle, WA | 09/09/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I am writing this partly because I gave only two stars for Mishmaoul. I am a big fan of Arabic pop & folk music and Diaspora was my first introduction to Natacha. I fell in love with her voice then, the first time and forever but I have little patience for too much western pop hybrids that do no justice to her beautiful Arabic singing (the cheezy 'I put a spell on you' from Ayeshteni, or the attempt at hip-hop 'Feen' from Mishmaoul). DIaspora definitely stays more to her roots than her later works. I am also writing this review in the hope that someday Natacha will return to her roots and do some Arabic folk songs or more original pieces like these. Also to the producers/engineers: too much verb, she doesnt need it!"

"This music is a perfect marriage of Arab and electronic music. I listened to it yesterday evening and I can tell you that it made me fall in trance. I especially like the harmony between traditional and modern elements, the instruments and the sound effects are in a perfect balance. It is hard to find something comparable to this. Therefore 5 stars."
Worth the price for Duden alone!

"This is the first Natacha album I've heard, and it blew me away. I can't stop replaying Duden!!! The background music, the mandolin, and her sweetly enchanting voice form a melody that soothes your mind and begs you to replay it when it's done."
