Hi.

The name, "Ninu Nina" stems from the alien language spoken by Robin Williams in "Mork & Mindy" ( a popular 1970's comedy show).

Project Natasha

Project Natasha

Project Natasha was born out of a need for musical expression. Initially a vinyl purist, Natasha moved through different technologies eventually becoming completely digital. This opened up an entirely new avenue of orchestration -- creating limitless expression in her performances.
Natasha's prime objective is to share truly unique musical experiences with her audience. Sometimes it's a night at The Sands, and other times it's a journey through bass-pounding, dark instrumentation and drums -- good music is the constant.
Her passion and skill at presentation make Natasha the perfect curator for evenings that set just the right ambiance and intrigue. Her early study of percussion has translated into deep, rhythmic grooves -- from bossanova and lounge to deep house, Natasha entraps her audience and weaves them into a musical journey.
Natasha has influences ranging from Tosca to Miles Davis, Frank Sinatra and classic lounge music. Although her unique sound is usually on the dark side of deep house, you can hear the classic jazz influences throughout her sets. Her distinct sound coupled with her understanding of quality music is a breath of fresh air in the music industry -- her performances always leave an impression on her audience.

Greatest inspirations or influences?

Outside of music, I’m very inspired by modern architecture/interior design, and fashion. Art influences life and vice versa, so I’m always looking for new stimuli.
How do you describe your genre/style of music?
Dark, deep house and spy groove. Musical explorations that I share with select audiences.

Upcoming gigs/projects going on this year?

This year I started the “Haus Sessions” series and the Project Natasha Podcast, which is now on iTunes. It’s a great opportunity for me to share what I’m into at the moment, and to curate the best of what I’m hearing out there. The podcast gives me the perfect avenue to share my tastes with a wider audience. As for the Sessions series, I plan on putting out “Funky Sessions” and “Lounge Sessions” later this year. I've also partnered with worldclique this year and will be sprinking my private events with more public billings.
