Biography

AVITAS is Victoria Wilson James & Kinan Atassi; a musical duo who believe their work to be an expression of Spirit, and that their symphonies encourage a certain lifestyle or philosophy of living to aid in dissolving the distractions of modern day existence. The name Avitas, is an anagram of their names; and is in essence, like the music, a fusion of their different cultures & creative spirits. One part of Avitas, Kinan Atassi hails from the mystical land of Syria in the Levant, and the other, Victoria Wilson James, from “the holy land of Indiana.” Destiny caused their paths to cross at a dinner party in the Summer of 2000, and shortly thereafter they began experimenting together to envisage a way of synergising the ancient, as well as, the contemporary musical influences of the Occident & the Orient.

Incorporating East & West, Arabia & India, Classical & Medieval Europe; the indigenous world music influences of Asia, Africa & the Far East; and then fusing them with contemporary VST, analogue & digital sequencing techniques. The end result, the stunning debut album A Course in Miracles, is a creation of incomparable & symbiotic compositions with a mystical message that transcends the ordinary and that ushers in an evolution in World Beat, Soul & Vocal Dance music. It is an experience that allows one to connect with the inner, extra-ordinary spirit, and therein realise a philosophy of life - a Lifestyle.
