Transglobal Underground was formed as a music collective 25 years ago in London, providing a ground-breaking platform for many cultures from Asia, Europe and the Caribbean. Its latest compilation album Direction Overground celebrates its longterm relationship with original vocalist Natacha Atlas whose own solo career has spanned oriental music, electronica and jazz.
