Transglobal Underground is a pioneering musical collective largely credited with being the first project to mix electronic beats with music from around the world. Emerging in the early 1990s, they challenged conventional dance music and embraced multilingual vocals.
Their fluid lineup featured notable members like Natacha Atlas and Hamid Mantu. They gained fame for their live performances and ventured into remixing and producing. Over the years, they evolved, incorporating Arabic and European influences. They continued to tour extensively and collaborate with artists from various regions.
The group's journey is marked by unpredictability and a commitment to musical exploration, making them a significant force in cross-cultural music. Their 2020 album, "Walls Have Ears," reflects their enduring creativity.
