Born in 1988, in the city of Dnipro in Ukraine, Natisa had such a nurturing relationship with her mother and father, that a move from child prodigy to fully-formed singer-songwriter was executed with the ease of an acrobat. Indeed, her parents encouraged Natisa’s musical activities to such an extent that, from birth, they saw a singer in her. Correspondingly, at the age of five, she stood on a chair and gave singing recitals to all her relatives. Less than a year after that, she was sent to music school for piano lessons. Naturally, by the time she turned sixteen, Natisa found herself enrolled 500km up the road, at the Kyiv Municipal Academy of Performing and Circus Arts – highlights of the program include singing and dancing, as well as pantomime, illusion and manipulation! – and just four years later, in 2008, Natisa became a soloist for the state academic orchestra, an institution that saw her collaborate with DJ Shiller, as well as 1970s disco/funk vocal supergroup, Boney M.
