Atlas Maior / Press

“The trio's trip to İstanbul -- their first-ever joint journey to a foreign city to gain more knowledge about the music of a country -- is a way for the musicians to show that they are interested in what is going outside of their society. “We do care about other people and places, and learning about different people's music is a way of connecting with them,” Lockwood commented, describing their trip as a process of expanding their horizons.”

“Atlas Maior is an Austin-based trio that has a deep appreciation for everything the world has to offer. Named after the eleven-volume world atlas published in Amsterdam in the 17th century, the band keeps a basic philosophy: While the lines of maps may identify the separate identities of places, music will always transcend. Of course, this means having an endless array of influences to infuse into their sound – Eastern Arab, North Indian, East Asian, South, North and Central American, among many other diverse styles. And the diversity is what appeals to them.”
