Natalie Beabella

A transatlantic blend of music after an eight years journey from Argentina to Sweden

Natalie Beabella’s debut album, No te doy más (2012) includes some of the most talented musicians in the genre in Sweden; Magnus Lindgren (Soul Enterprise, Batucada Jazz, Herbie Hancock), Liliana Zavala (Fever Ray, Batucada Jazz), Santiago Jimenez (Mynta) and Gunnar Thullberg (Calle Real, Hoffmaestro) are all contributing on No te doy más. The result is a creative blend of sounds from both Latin American and Scandinavian music. No te doy más is a description of Natalie Beabella’s first eight years living in Sweden with insights about love, self respect, empathy and freedom. The acoustic instruments: double bass, percussion, violin, guitars, flute, trumpet and bandoneon, together with Beabella’s musical ideas, generate a soft and organic sound without losing the edge.

In response to a musical curiosity and in order to transmit her feelings aptly, Natalie has written the songs in a mash of styles: Pop, candombe, cumbia, jazz, tango, bossanova and reggae – some even with a touch of Arabic sound. One could call it World Pop.

Musical references leads to artists like: Lila Downs, Rickie Lee Jones, Manu Chao, Melingo, Lhasa, Calexico, Café Tacuba and Sting.

”Hennes debutalbum No te doy más, inspelat i Stockholm och Buenos Aires, är en mycket angenäm upplevelse, full av böljande, melodistarka låtar som andas värme och optimism” Stefan Warnqvist, UNT

”Natalie Beabella drar sig inte för att ge sig in i olika musikstilar. (…) Det inledande titelspåret doftar tango med bandoneón och smäktande violin, Only the stars är en vacker ballad med mjukt piano och brummande kontrabas och Out in the Atmosphere som sjungs på både engelska och spanska är skönt slö.” Rasmus Klockljung, Lira musikmagasin

Senaste singeln ”I’m Gonna Dance” lades i A-listan på P2 Världen.
