East meets West, modernity meets tradition. In the person of Natacha Atlas. Atlas draws heavily on her Egyptian and Moroccan heritage, but she also has whole collections of remixes under her belt. This is a remix of one of Atlas’s more traditional sounding songs. I couldn’t find a video for it, but the original can be found on her 2001 album Ayeshteni. I would say that this incarnation is a bit more festive for New Year’s, while the original is rather mournful.
