She has spent over a decade bringing the rare art form of playing music on a carpenter’s saw (known as the Musical Saw or Singing Saw) to audiences around the world.

Born and raised in Israel, she performed with the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra, the Royal Air Moroccan Symphony Orchestra, and  the Manhattan Chamber Orchestra and at Lincoln Center’s Avery Fisher Hall with PDQ Bach composer Peter Schickele.

Film appearances include ‘Dummy‘ with Adrian Brody and The Heart is a Drum Machine. Natalia’s Musical saw can be heard on the soundtracks of films such as Time Out of Mind  with Richard Gere, and Fox Searchlight’s Another Earth. Radio performances include NPR (A Prairie Home Companion), WNYC, XM Satelite Radio, WBAI & WFMU.  Natalia has recorded on Capitol Records, Universal Records and Atlantic Records.
