Feels like an eclectic live act combining electronic, ethnic, dub and rap music, performed by highly acclaimed artists.
Shamanika (Natalia Norko) is a singer who hypnotizes the audience like a shaman during the concerts, with her magical voice and dance. In Natalia’s musical activities she is inspired by anthropology, theater, yoga, Buddhism, mysticism, shamanism, music therapy and travels around the world. She believes in the healing power of sound and learns about music therapy, using instruments and voice. According to her, if you use dance as a tool, you can get into trance and transform your discomfort into pure energy. In her lyrics she plays with Polish. In singing, she created a specific style between melodeclamation, sung poetry and rap. She became known to many fans in the Polish dub scene thanks to Zebra band, started with Zdzisław Orłowski in 2007. 10 years later Natalia created a musical and ethnic project “Ina Makha”, meaning “Songs in tribute to Mother Earth”. In 2015, She adopted stage name Shamanika and began to create her own productions and play as a DJ, remaining open to various styles, from electronic to ethnic music.
