“The X concert will be a summary of the work of the girl hailed years ago as the princess of electropop. It will be a return to the roots, a manifesto of independence today and a look into the future. The X concert is surprising guests, the artist’s greatest hits, but also songs that you don’t expect” – we read in announcement of a special event.
At the Jassmine Club in Warsaw Natalia Nikiel is preparing a musical journey through the albums “Lupus Electro”, “Discordia”, awarded with the Fryderyk “Origo” to the last album “Regnum” from February 2022.
Currently, the singer is in Mexico, where she collects inspiration for the second season of the podcast “Understanding Latino”. The fans’ attention was especially drawn to the photos from Calakmul.
“Darlings, here are some sexy pics of me to catch your attention to the absolute most amazing archaeological site I’ve ever seen – Calakmul! This is one of the places that is hard to get to. It is located deep in the forest in the state of Campeche just a few dozen kilometers from the Guatemalan border which is generally a straight line because it cuts through a large, dense forest” – describes Natalia Nykiel.
“The history of the Mayans is very interesting, especially since the peak of their power dates back to several hundred years before the arrival of the Spaniards (H. Cortes found the largest Mayan cities deserted). The climb up is very impressive, there is some ancient, strange energy in it” he adds.
Before leaving for Mexico, Nykiel took part in a composition camp in Lisbon. “What wonderful days those were! I didn’t think my return to Lisbon would be so fruitful in terms of songs.”
Natalia Nykiel became famous as a participant in the second edition “The Voice Of Poland”. On September 23, 2014, her official full-length debut was released – “Lupus Electro”.
Her adventure with singing began in childhood, and her first teacher was her grandmother – she taught her to sing church songs, write, read and … tie shoelaces.
Natalia is a laureate of many competitions, e.g. National Castle Meetings in Olsztyn in 2012 and Mrągowo Artistic Impressions 2012, she performed in the rock band Ahmada.
The young artist managed to mark her presence even before the release of her debut. In early August 2014, a music video for her first single was released “Wolf” and a digital mini-album “Lupus EP“.
The singer creates music known as electropop. She invited the best native artists working in this trend to cooperate on her debut, including entrusted the production of the album Fox (previously collaborating with such artists as Maria Peszek, Paulina Przybysz, Organek, and Novika). Natalia’s lyrics were written Katarzyna Nosowska, Karolina Kozak and known from Serene Jacek “Budyn” Szymkiewicz.
On February 18, 2022, her album was released “Regnum”.
