Natalie Michan performs a fusion of Latin-American and Middle-Eastern music, drawing on the traditions of Spain, Cuba Peru and the Orient. Her songs are poems and prayers that celebrate the spirit. And it is Natalie's pure and haunting voice that carries listeners on a journey through exotic traditions of the past arriving at a transcendent moment of the present.
