Press release

Boston, 1/1/2015 

Atlas Soul brings Hot Funky Afro- Mediterranean Jazz to Harvard Square Regattabar Jazz Club January 31st 2015

Band leader and multi-instrumentalist Jacques Pardo tells this story when asked about his passion for music: “I can remember clearly from my most tender years my father lifting me to stand on a table to sing at every family and friends gathering, I knew that there was no escaping it so I embraced it and I kind of liked the attention! He bought me my first guitar when I was five years old at one of our annual vacation trips to Spain! I can still remember that guitar too, it was not a Spanish style guitar with nylon strings but a ¾ size metal string, looking like a Gypsy Jazz guitar style. The action was high and my fingers ached for a long time but eventually I learned to play a little. Just a couple of years later my mom sent me to the Paris conservatory to learnsolfège and after another 2 years I was allowed to take guitar lessons.. My parents were immigrants – my mom from Algeria and my dad from Greece – anyone that has spent time in Africa or any impoverished warm weather countries will understand what I mean: music is everywhere and at all time, radio blasting songs at every corner, every little shop, singing aloud while working is the regular texture of every days life! My parents played Spanish, Arabic, Jewish, Greek, music at home all the time it was their way of connecting with their roots, their way of feeling alive after the terrible years of WWII and so I grew up listening to Andalous, Raï, Chaabi, Flamenco guitar, bouzouki etc.. at home, while outside I was just like any other hip kid listening to the English pop, French pop, Rock’N Roll and Rhythm’N Blues.

 At 18 a friend took me to see Fela Kuti w/Africa 70 and to me it was a revelation, a transcendental experience! His performance, the dancing, the rhythms, the horn section were a part of my dreams for many months: I decided to play sax as soon as I could get my hands on one of them…”


“What hits hardest about Atlas Soul’s sound is the natural funk of North African music and also powerful vocals, which span fluid, passionate Gnawa melodies and husky Raï hooks..” Banning Eyre.

Atlas Soul features two outstanding lead vocalist Anwar Maghreb a master Raï vocalist from Morocco and Regie Gibson an award winning poet, percussionist and a natural power house performer. Drummer extraordinary Nadjim Kebir from Algeria and bassist Tim Paul Weiner “The groove master” hold the rhythm section along with Greek-American virtuoso guitarist Perry Bakalos and saxophonist, guitarist & principal composer Jacques Pardo.

Polyrhythm and melodies rooted in the Maghrebi tradition blend effortlessly with deep jazz, funk and intelligent hip hop.

The 8th Annual Boston Muslim Film Festival: El Gusto - Movie at 6:00 PM. live music at 7:30 PM to 8:00 PM
38 Newbury St #702,
Boston, Massachusetts 02116
(617)-266-0080 [map]
Price: $10

Atlas Soul Acoustic Quartet is honored to be invited to play after the projection of the movie El Gusto.

Movie projection at 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM. Atlas Soul will play a short set from 7:30 PM to 8:00 PM


In 2003, film director Safinez Bousbia stumbled upon the inspirational story of El Gusto, a group of Jewish and Muslim artists separated by war in Algeria more than 50 years ago, but brought together by a shared passion for Chaâbi – a musical blend of Berber, Andalusian, and Flamenco-influenced sounds meaning “of the people.” Called “The Buena Vista Social Club of Algiers,” the 20-piece El Gusto orchestra stars in Bousbia’s documentary, chronicling the transcendent power of music.

 About the Boston Muslim Film Festival 

The American Islamic Congress is hosting its 8th Annual Boston Muslim Film Festival from March 25th to April 11th. Our festival provides a fresh perspective into the complexity of the Muslim Community. Open dialogue on unspoken issues and tackling stereotypes surrounding the Muslim Identity is the aim for the series of films AIC has selected this year. The movies will address social issues such as American Muslim Identity, sexual harassment, Interfaith collaborations, revolutions, genocide, generation gaps, censorship, and many more—visually complementing the striking theme of this year’s film festival—“Contrast in Depth.”

Atlas Soul is a band performing original music that celebrates and bridges Afro-Mediterranean melodies & grooves with Jazz, poetry, hip hop & Funk thus naturally creating music one could describe as Maghrebian-Funk, Rock’n Raï and Chaâbi-Jazz.

Expect a powerful, energetic & tight live performance guarantied to move any audience!

They have played countless prestigious venues both here and abroad such as The Montreal Jazz Festival, The Kennedy Center, The Festival International de Louisiane, Africa Nights Festival etc..

“What hits hardest about Atlas Soul’s sound is the natural funk of North African music and also powerful vocals, which span fluid, passionate Gnawa melodies and husky Raï hooks. There is great wisdom in a world-music outfit that embraces divergent genres (but not so many that the sound loses its identity" Banning Eyre - Afropop Worldwide

Atlas Soul sings and rap in English, French, Arabic and Hebrew . The lyrics touch a wide variety of subjects such as love, happiness, music but also racism, oppression and poverty.

They have won or placed 3 times the Independent Music Awards, the Billboard World Song, The Unisong International, Global Rhythm Magazine, Just Plain Folks Music Awards, Boston Music Awards and many more..

"Atlas Soul's blend of jazz, funk and Middle-Eastern/Arabic grooves is a fascinating sonic stew that will catch any listener's ear. This is their second appearance on our CD's compilation. We like'em, and you will too". Global Rhythm Magazine

Philosophically and politically, Atlas Soul hopes to inspire world peace through a fusion of music and culture that gets people to the dance floor.

Their motto is world-music-for-world-peace

We are back at Ryles for a great show! We 'll play new tunes and have many special guests... Bring your dancing shoes! Feedback we got from our last shows..(Thanks, it means a lot to us!) Sheila October 13, 2009 “ On a scale of 1-10, Atlas Soul is way beyond a 10! The musicians are extremely talented, spirited, professional. The music is a nice blend of musical funk, world, jazz...even a hint of hip hop beats. Great energy & an engaging interaction with the audience, it was easy for the band to rouse the crowd to dance, clap and sing along throughout the show for an incredibly fun time! Sets were long & satisfying, the one break very brief. I loved the band, all of the music, danced all night and place them among on the best bands I've seen in a long time! It was a great time for all! A must see for folks who love this style of music and who love to dance. ” L.N. (Cambridge) January 5, 2010 Wow. Three thumbs up! What a great evening, even though Atlas Soul only played one set. Excellent band - the best I've seen in a Boston club - If what I saw last night was typical, these guys are NYC-quality, no problem. More specifically - 1) the mix of genres (funk, North African, soul, jazz, world) really was as described and it all worked really well together, each element coming out distinctly at different times, but all of it blending together smoothly and unbelievably well; 2) their music is great to dance to; and 3) even though the music itself has a really nice raw energy, they're the most professional-sounding band I've seen in a club in Boston - each member by himself could probably make any lesser band worth seeing just bc that member is so good; all together, they have a nicely polished sound, and are really "together" as a band.

Are you in town this Saturday night? Come and join Atlas Soul for a cross-cultural music experience! bring your dancing shoes.. The hallmark of the North African musical tradition is an openness to others. Musicians from this culture effortlessly blend centuries-old rhythms, instruments and melodic concepts with modern ideas and innovations from the world over, creating a constantly changing panorama of styles. Jacques Pardo and Atlas Soul exemplify this spirit. In their second CD, Mabrouka, the group serves up a tantalizing stew of musical styles. The delighted listener hears the influences of jazz, Latin, flamenco, French hip-hop and the traditional North African music, all blended with the deft and sure hand of a master chef. Great vocals top off the warm and savory instrumental mix. Mike Crager -
