Nathalie proudly represents what is arguably the oldest urban folk music in the world; the soul music of Portugal, fado. Her intense voice and raw emotion has gained her overwhelming recognition by the media as one of today’s leading “fadistas,” a huge honor considering she was born and raised in the United States of America.
The success of her award winning debut album in 2007, “Corre-me o Fado Nas Veias” quickly earned her major popularity within the Portuguese community and international audiences which later led her to larger and emblematic stages and world music festivals.
In the spring of 2013 the Boston Globe described Nathalie as the “fresh face of fado.” She was also honored by PALCUS with the “Young Portuguese American ‘Promessa’ Award” which is considered the highest distinction attributed within the Portuguese community in the U.S.
In early 2016 Sony Music Portugal released the critically acclaimed sophomore album “Fado Além”. This album, produced and musically directed by Ricardo J. Dias, includes original music written and composed by praised artists including Amelia Muge, Vitorino, Joao Paulo Esteves Da Silva, Mario Claudio and many others with a calculated balance of traditional fados with an evolved sound. “Fado Além” was awarded 4 stars by Portugal’s leading newspaper “Expresso” calling Nathalie’s “debut a breath of fresh air amongst the fado albums produced by other new artists.”Nathalie is currently touring the album in Portugal and Europe .
This performance is part of a US tour of Fado Alem and the NYC debut of the album with her Portuguese musicians.
