Natalia Clavier

Nothing beats the sweet sound of a woman's voice. 
Add in beauty, intelligence, charm, humor & humility... and you have Natalia Clavier.

Natalia is one of the strong, feminine energies in The Echocentrics, Federico Aubele and Thievery Corporation. She's the woman behind the voice that gently carries you away to a dreamy place... reminding us that the world filled with faraway lands that may or may not exist.

Here she is singing one of her original songs off her album, Nectar:

Sometimes its easy to forget that there's a real-life person behind such an inspiring voice. And what's even better than hearing her albums or seeing her perform on stage, is learning that she's just an earth-bound woman that us "mere mortals" can get to know as a sweet friend.


Let's keep it real and find out just what makes Natalia Clavier tick:

What is your idea of perfect happiness?
a world without borders nor visas. perfect health. to create a family. to be present.
