Atlas Maior hace nacer la música a través de tradiciones musicales de jazz, árabe, turco y latinoamericano.

Atlas Maior hace un mapa de diversas tradiciones musicales, creando un dialogo entre los idiomas del Jazz, de Oriente Medio y de Latinoamérica. El grupo compone música que rinde homenaje a estas tradiciones y sus orígenes culturales y geográficas. Los miembros de la banda Joshua Thomson (saxofón alto, flautas), Charlie Lockwood (oud) y Ted Camat (percusión) crean un sonido único que equilibra momentos íntimos de sinceridad, con poderosas melodías y pasajes rítmicos incendiarios. Thomson y Lockwood escriben melodías originales explorando maqamat (el sistema modal de Oriente Medio) y progresiones armónicas del jazz americano. El percusionista Ted Camat aplica una amplia variedad de ritmos e instrumentos de percusión tradicionales, como el dumbek de Oriente Medio, el cajón peruano y el pandero brasileño.

Atlas Maior maps diverse musical traditions, placing Jazz, Middle Eastern, and Latin American musical idioms in dialogue with one another. The group composes music that pays homage to the stewards of these traditions and their cultural and geographic origins. Band members Joshua Thomson (alto saxophone, flutes), Charlie Lockwood (oud), and Ted Camat (percussion) create a unique sound that balances intimate moments of sincerity with powerful melodies and incendiary rhythmic passages. Thomson and Lockwood write original melodies exploring maqamat (the Middle Eastern modal system) and harmonic progressions of American jazz. Percussionist Ted Camat applies a wide variety of rhythms and traditional percussion instruments including the Middle Eastern dumbek, Peruvian cajón, and Brazilian pandero.

In October 2015 Atlas Maior released their fourth studio album Keyif EP. Keyif received positive reviews and media placement from KUTX, Austin’s National Public Radio affiliate network, All About Jazz, World Music Central, UTNE Reader, Midwest Record and more. Atlas Maior has toured internationally in Turkey and Spain, and has received hometown recognition with the proclamation of “Atlas Maior Day” on March 27, 2014 by Austin’s City Council. They have opened for internationally acclaimed artists Vieux Farka Touré and Tal National, and have performed at music festivals including Wobeonfest, Art Outside, SXSW, and the City of Austin’s F1 Fan Fest. The group has collaborated with a host of talented musicians in Austin and from around the world, including Atash, Fared Shafinury, Lou Lou Ghelichkhani of Thievery Corporation, Layalina, The University of Texas at Austin Middle East Ensemble Bereket, The Austin Global Orchestra and many more.
