Info:Original Atalaya is a Dutch MC, whose roots are in Brazil.

The artist name "Original Atalaya" has a special meaning. His friends in Brazil called him Original and after his conversion to the gospel of Christ, he became a new man. Thus a new name was appropriate and Atalaia was chosen. Atalaia is a warrior, a watchman. In old times soldiers who were guarding the citywalls, like in Jeruzalem, were called Atalaia. And so the artistname Original Atalaya was born.

Original Atalaya started his involvement in the music scene in 2004, rap meant for him a message of drugs, sex and other misery. In May 2005 the rapper turned his life to Jesus Christ and soon after he got baptized. Music remained at the background until September 2006, when his interest was fueled again in the hip hop culture and the inspiration was given to honour God with hip hop music.

After reading Revelations 5 the words Seven Seals remained in his thoughts and spirit. After much prayer for wisedom and guidance this turned into something solid. The christian label for Dutch hip hop "Zeven Zegels" [meaning Seven Seals] was founded in April 2006.

In December 2006 his debut album "Genesis" is released. In November 2007 Original Atalaya released his first mixtape entitled "Rappertorio Mixtape".
