Naty Hernandez, or simply Naty, is a singer-songwriter, guitarist, acoustic and electric bassist native of Medellín, Colombia. Her music is a sonic journey that merges the rhythms from the Andean mountains in Colombia with jazz, pop, and world music sounds. While her music is deeply rooted in Colombian rhythms such as bambuco, guabina and pasillo, her music approach brings her to lead a new generation of Colombian women composers as her music continues to revitalize the traditional repertoire. She has shared the stage with artists such as Marta Gómez and María Isabel Saavedra, and has toured different cities throughout Colombia, Mexico, Panama, Peru, and the United States.

Naty is currently one of the youngest members of the Colombian Andean Music Songwriters Corporation, Cantandina, with whom she has made numerous workshops and concerts. Her song “Manos de Agua” has received widespread praise and remained in the Top 20 of Radio Nacional Colombia for more than eight weeks. Naty is currently finalizing her new album, due in the summer of 2017. She is a full-tuition recipient at Berklee College of Music in Boston, finishing a dual major in songwriting and contemporary writing and production. She studied before guitar performance from EAFIT University in Colombia.
