Along with special guest musicians Bob James, Andy Summers and Nils Petter Molvaer Deeyah creates an exciting and eclectic new album Ataraxis.

Deeyah explores her musical roots and beginnings on the brand new album titled Ataraxis. Having already worked with such maestros and musical greats in her career as Ustad Fateh Ali Khan, Ustad Sultan Khan, Ustad Shaukat Hussain Khan, Knut Reiersrud, Nazim Ali Khan, Jan Garbarek, Ustad Zakir Hussain, Audun Erlien, Talvin Singh, Attaullah Esa Khelvi, Morten Harket, AR Rehman, David Lindley, Guy Sigsworth, Asad Amanat Ali Khan, Paolo Vinaccia, Rick Nowels, Billy Steinberg and many more.

Deeyah now teams up with legendary award winning jazz pianist Bob James, iconic (The Police) guitarist Andy Summers and acclaimed Norwegian trumpet player Nils Petter Molvaer on her new album Ataraxis.

Ataraxis brings together the beautiful musicianship of Bob James, Andy Summers and Nils Petter Molvaer with Deeyah's refreshing musical perspective and vast grasp of both western electronic music and the traditional musical styles of the east.

Ataraxis is an unusual and exciting journey through harsh electronic soundscapes based around powerful, beautiful Pakistani folk and classical influenced vocal melodies and lyrics.

Deeyah's album Ataraxis will be released through Heilo/Grappa Records.

Ataraxis will be available on iTunes from the 12th of November 2007.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
