Natalie Di Luccio grew up in an Italian-Canadian family on the outskirts of Toronto. A trained opera singer who always wanted to break the rules, and dreamed of exposing western classical music to the masses. Through a twist of fate, she received a message on MySpace to collaborate on an Indian fusion album. At the tender age of 19, the McGill University student packed her bags and headed off to Mumbai. Since that time her story has been anything but ordinary.

Natalie has been paving quite a unique path for herself in the music industry. In her recent TED talk, Natalie speaks about her belief in getting out of one's comfort zone and credits that belief for giving her this incredible journey.
