„My soul decides, which language I sing in,“ Natalia Klitschko says. “Mostly that’s Russian or Ukrainian. How else could it be? Russian was the language we used to speak in school every day and my deepest roots are Ukrainian – just like the folk songs we used to sing at home.”
Meanwhile, Natalia Klitschko does not sing folk songs anymore, at least not on her debut album “Naked Soul.” She performs her own songs, co-written with her musical companion, composer and pianist Oliver Grenville, recorded in the Capellmeister-Studios at the gates of Hamburg by Peter Hoffmann, one of Germany’s most renowned producers. Even though the track titles are English, with regard to her fellow campaigners, the languages remain her mother tongues. “Nobody in the studio could understand my lyrics, but that circumstance did not only cost energy, it provided a special kind of vigor to the recordings: I was forced to descend deep into the feelings behind the words, to express them just through the sound of my voice alone. In retrospect, it reminds me of my youth: Back then, we used to sing, love, laugh and cry to western music – to lyrics we didn’t understand. But we still felt what they were about. When the soul is singing, language becomes less important.”
Sometimes powerful, often almost whispering, always very close to the listener’s ear: Natalia’s voice clearly reveals something intimate without the need for superfluous words. She is supported by a small, mostly acoustic and very variable ensemble, that sensitively provides a foundation for her voice, from the joyful “Under The Rain” to “Let Me Go”, the only album track sung in English, an almost traditionally swinging blues song. The airy jazz-arrangements occasionally ranged by Latin music sounds, are carried by piano and double bass, supplemented by single strings that adorn the vocals, by carefully placed percussions and other, sometimes surprising, timbres. One of those timbres is the language. Unusual for most western ears, it is a truly unique experience: The Russian and the even more flowing Ukrainian passages enrich the chanson-like melodies with a longing melancholy and a mysterious, almost exotic appeal.
As equally personal and universal as the music, are the stories behind the songs. They tell of love – in all its shapes: “To me, love includes everything, it comes in an endless amount of shades, it’s so strong and so fragile at the same time. I need those ruptures and unpredictable ways that constitute the feeling. Uniformity is death – the highs and lows of love, that’s life to me. That is the reason my songs have all these colors, from purest light to nightly black.”
