Born in sunny Greece - the country that inspired the minds of great composers like Mikis Theodorakis (under whose the baton she has sang in the Herodion Theatre) and Manos Hatzidakis; being half Polish with a Masters degree in Composition obtained in the home country of film icons such as Roman Polanski or Andrzej Wajda and bearing in her soul the national identity of prodigious composers like Frederic Chopin and Jan Paderewski; currently working in London - the European capital of film industry - Natali Drosou combines in her works a variety of elements that allow her to be recognized as a truly versatile and unique composer.

 

She has worked with such names as the Oscar winning composer Jan A.P. Kaczmarek (Finding Neverland; Unfaithful) or Zbigniew Preisner (Three Colours: Blue, White, Red; The Double Life of Véronique) as their orchestrator, assistant and copyist.

 

She won the 2nd Prize of the Transatlantyk International Film Music Competition 2011 and was selected to take part at A Sunday in the Country, Composers and Directors meeting, held at the Rozbitek Institute in Poland in September the same year, organised by the European Film Academy. She has worked in the music department of the US Production The Time Being that was screend at the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival.

 

Some of the films with her music have been screened in Festivals in Cannes, Marbella, London, Cracow, Poznan, Riga and she continues to expand her musical horizons by engaging in various projects in the ever vibrant London.

 

Natali's music can be subtle, mystical or melancholic, but also joyful in its simplicity, uplifting and inspiring. Yet there is always this common element - one cannot help imagining a story behind it.

 

As she says, she can’t help telling stories through her music…because “where words fail, music speaks”… (Hans Christian Andersen)
